An institute to train qualified agronomists to contribute to Morocco's agricultural development. The site is a carefully landscaped 100,000 square metre lot and comprises: three lecture halls, an auditorium, classrooms, six laboratory wings, administrative offices, a library, dormitories, and a dining hall.
The structures are grouped into two major clusters. One containing the education facilities is a loose collection of nine buildings connected by a system of covered walkways and informal gardens. The second cluster of buildings, comprising the dormitories, is more densely massed.
Several of the buildings are square in plan with central courtyards. Parallel walkways enclose elongated rectangular gardens and a system of pools and irrigation canals unifies the site.
