Architecture: Taroudant University by Saad El Kabbaj, Driss Kettani and Mohamed Amine Siana: “..projecting window frames [and other rectilinear elements] cast dramatic shadows across the sandy red walls of this university in the Moroccan desert..the buildings of Taroudant University are arranged either side of a north to south axis of gardens that splits the site into two halves..Walls of each concrete block are uniformly covered in the orangey red render, which is applied roughly so that it shows a grain..Windows are arranged in grids across the walls of the buildings and projecting fins shade them from the harshest sunlight..”  Contextual, volumetric and coloristic sensibilities..includes a 30-image slideshow..
