The Marrakech airport was extended with a new contemporary wing, featuring an exterior of 24 concrete rhombuses, with glass printed ancient Islamic ornamental motives. The roof is constructed by a steel structure that continues outward, forming a 24 m canopy providing shade. Inside, the rhombuses are covered in white aluminium. The roof is covered with 72 photovoltaic pyramids, measuring overall approximately 15300m2. The project creates a contemporary picture while preserving the Moroccan tradition.
