Designed by architects Saad El Kabbaj, Driss Kettani and Mohamed Amine Siana, the Guelmim Technology School comprises a series of concrete buildings that feature projecting windows, louvres and narrow openings. A series of canopies create sheltered walkways and seating areas along the north to south axis that divides the campus into two.

The building tries to avoid the pitfalls of many cliches by keeping from the context only its essence. The use of light and form and the simplicity of the design are the strengths of the building and further research informed that there is a distinct influence of Mexican architecture on the space.

Our aim is the promote and celebrate works of diverse designers and architects on the continent and are delighted to feature architecture from East Africa.
