Guelmim School of Technology Morocco Aga Khan Award Architecture

The campus of the Guelmim School of Technology, in Guelmim, Morocco, won the Archmarathon Awards 2015 for the "Education" category. It was designed by architects Saad El Kabbaj, Driss Kettani and Mohamed Amine Siana and is among the 19 finalist projects chosen for the Aga Khan Award for Architecture.

The campus is composed of several structures including, among others, a 200-seat amphitheatre, classrooms, workshops, a library, and sports facilities. All buildings are made of reinforced concrete and are connected by yards and sheltered walkways, organised along a north-south axis.
The campus boasts walkways, which are protected from the intense sun, and sheltered rest areas. The different elements composing the project can easily be interpreted and identified. The extensive size and low ceiling height of the buildings are compensated for by glass exteriors and narrow windows emerging from the façades to ensure a more effective temperature regulation and favour natural ventilation. The ochre colour of the exteriors and the layout of the area, which comprises local vegetation and decorative rocks, allows the structures to blend in with the landscape.
