Plan d'amènagement d'Agadir
Agadir, Morocco

Michel Écochard’s plan for Agadir, one of a series of urban planning projects in Morocco, was to insert a new town centre on a horseshoe layout, building on the waterfront around a large avenue perpendicular to it. He and his team were aware of the Agadir’s special geographic situation, wedged between the mountains and the sea and with limited land for its anticipated development and discouraged speculation in favour of a more centrally controlled expansion. Unfortunately the town suffered catastrophic damage from an earthquake in 1960.
