Project Summary

Culturally-sensitive urban master plan

The abandonment of Agadir’s Inbiaât Stadium has drained the lifeblood of the precinct and initiated the idea to redevelop the adjacent wasteland in between the beach and the city center. The result is the Agadir Connection concept to support urban development and upgrade facilities on the fringe of the city center.

Architectural, landscaping and urban design interventions transform the previous transit space into an attractive living zone and space to rest.
