NAUTA WINS THIRD PRIZE IN FEZ, MOROCCO

NAUTA, IN ASSOCIATION WITH CABINET D’ ARCHITECTURE EL ALAMI, HAS WON THE THIRD PRIZE IN THE INVITED COMPETITION FOR THE FEZ-BAB JDID CARPARK.

How can we design a parking area capable to be transformed in time, adapting to the future of sustainable urban mobility? How can we dignify an important part of the urban landscape, while supplying a necessary facility to access the Medina and improve the local mobility? How can we design a car centered space, while focusing on sustainable principles that can enhance the environmental quality of the city?

Based on these questions, we proposed a flexible design with a short term and long term car-free solution.

NAUTA’S PROPOSAL FOR THE NATIONAL MUSEUM OF ARCHAEOLOGY AND NATURAL SCIENCES OF RABAT, MOROCCO

After three years from its launch, the Moroccan government cancelled the competition for the new Archaeology and Natural Sciences Museum of Rabat. NAUTA presents its project, developed in cooperation with El Alami (local architects), Ingeco (structures), BCD progetti (MEP), Aresingegneria (lighting systems).

The plan of the main exhibition space is articulated into two main concentric squares, separated by a thick structural ring constituted by a double concrete wall that reaches the roof. The exhibition rings offer an ideal flexibility to allow multiple layouts for different curatorial strategies. In fact, with their very simple plan, they offer three exhibition types; from the external perimeter, to the central flexible space, crossing the ‘secret’ rooms hosted in the structural layer, the visitor reaches the central grand void, dominated by the biggest attractions. The secret rooms will host special objects that can benefit of artificial light, as well as offering a more intimate and concentrated experience of the artwork. The concentric system offers every visitor the freedom to choose his favorite visit, from chronological, thematic or partial.
