Oum Laalag Oasis
Mhamid, Morocco
The construction of housing for eco-tourists and for the local people is the latest phase of this project, the ultimate goal of which is the repopulation of the oasis. A multi-pronged approach has been followed in fighting the exodus from rural to urban areas and the attendant desertification of the oasis. The approach includes the development of artisanal crafts, the encouragement of tourism and wildlife preservation. The modular housing units are constructed of adobe; each unit is 70 m² with a patio of 45 m² and a terrace.
