Earth Building and Architecture Workshop in Southern Morocco

Oasis of M’hamid, South of Morocco: 22 January – 1 February 2018

Terrachidia is organising a new Earth Building and Traditional Architecture Workshop in the South of Morocco, which will take place at the Oasis of M’hamid from 22 January – 1 February 2018.

This time the main fortified gate of a ksar will be restored. As always, participants will be able to learn the traditional building techniques of Southern Morocco directly from local masters and to put these techniques into practice in the restoration of the architecture of this oasis, all contributing to the sustainable development of the region. At the same time, they will undertake the heritage recording and documentation, trying to understand the condition and context of Mhamid.
