Figuig: Hotel of the Future Competition – A Journey Beyond

The recently concluded « Figuig: Hotel of the Future » competition has left an indelible mark on the historic oasis of Figuig, Morocco. Nestled in the southeastern part of the country, Figuig is not just a mere tourist spot but a repository of rich history, social cohesion, and cultural diversity, spanning centuries.

Building upon the success of the DAR AL WAHAT competition, My African Competition partnered with the Territorial Municipality of Figuig and the School of Architecture of the International University of Rabat (UIR) to spearhead this transformative initiative. Under the overarching theme of « Figuig: Hotel of the Future, » the competition sought to galvanize architects and designers to envision and construct a modern-day sanctuary in Figuig, one that transcends conventional hospitality norms.

The primary aim of the competition was twofold: to promote sustainable tourism and to celebrate and preserve the unique cultural and architectural heritage of Figuig. Participants were challenged to conceive an innovative hotel concept that seamlessly integrates with the local landscape while championing environmental sustainability and community engagement.

This competition served as a platform for budding architects to showcase their ingenuity and expertise, offering them a rare opportunity to contribute to the socio-economic development of Figuig. Their designs were not just blueprints; they were testaments to a future where tradition meets innovation, and where the past guides the present towards a brighter tomorrow.

As we bid farewell to this enriching journey, we extend our heartfelt gratitude to all participants, whose unwavering dedication and boundless creativity have left an enduring imprint on Figuig’s landscape. Together, we have embarked on a voyage of transformation, and the echoes of our endeavors will resonate across Figuig for generations to come.
