‘revised pantheon’ by fala + filipe paixao
the radical proposal for marrakech’s main square by portuguese designers fala + filipe paixao revises the pantheon concept,
as everything happens in the square. a market filled with tourists, color, light, movement, with no apparent order would
cover the entire space, where in the center, a small opening would give users reason to go under the structure.
the strength of the monolith only makes sense for the beauty of its exception. by proposing a massive concrete structure that
creates a shadow on the market, a tent in the square, a force would try to impose an abstract order on the site. product of a
simple geometry, the site is 100 meters long and is oriented in north-south arrangement. the slab is supported by a regular
grid of concrete columns; where at the core there is a light source that gives the whole a reason to be remembered.
