In Marrakech, at the foot of the Atlas Mountains and beside the 12th-century Menara Gardens – west of the Moroccan city –, David Chipperfield will be building a Museum for Photography and Visual Arts. Designed as a block that breaks its geometry to open up terraces, with strips perforated in the facades, the British architect’s project will accommodate a theater, a café, classrooms and public spaces as well as exhibition galleries. Approximately 6,000 square meters in area, the museum is organized around a large courtyard rising the entire height of the building, with a pool on the first floor and a garden surrounding the void created at third-floor level.
