HMMD convoca a participar del Concurso de arquitectura Casablanca Bombing Rooms. La inscripcion cierra el 17 de septiembre de 2015.
El objetivo del concurso es proponer ideas para una biblioteca publica en la ciudad de Casablanca, Marruecos, en el sitio que fuera escenario de atentados en el año 2003.
Morocco’s unique location as a connecting point between Europe, the Middle East and Africa means that cultures from around the world constantly co-exist there. Throughout its long history Casablanca has seen its fair share of strife and conflict, with violent acts claiming many lives, regardless of their religion, creed or culture.
Extremist acts are, in a way, a form of ignorance, believing blindly that violent actions will help your cause when in fact they only harm it. In order to battle this ignorance HMMD Architecture Competitions is proposing an ideas competition to transform the site of a previous act of violence into one that educates and works to eliminate ignorance.
HMMD Architecture Competitions are therefore tasking participants with creating ideas for the Casablanca Bombing Rooms whose main function will be as a public library on the site of the 2003 Casablanca bombings.
3 winning proposals and 6 honourable mentions will be selected. HMMD will award a total of US $10,000 in prize money to competition winners as follows:
1st prize winner – US$ 6,000
2nd prize winner – US$ 3,000
3rd prize winner – US$ 1,000
The winners will get international art and design media coverage and will be featured on the HMMD website.
