Mediatheque in Cassablanca

The mediatheque of Casablanca is located in the hard of the old harbour area. It is the intention of the municipality to redevelop the area and reconnecting it with the city.


Research on site showed the necessary design strategies for a Mediterranean climate. Where shadow is more valuable than sunlight. And the old medina of the city show how the historical architecture facilitates diverse functions and communicates to wards society.


The program of the mediatheque has the intention to connect the public with new media and distribute knowledge. Opening up the building and leading the public flow through the building enabled the building to directly exhibit its program and emphasising on its goal.


To emphasize this intention the architectural expression of the building is introvert along its borders. While large openings en visual connections are placed along the public route through the building.
