Abstract

This project recommends adaptive reuse plans for the foundouks of Rabat’s Medina in order to bolster their economic impact. Through interviews with the residents of the foundouks and the Prefecture of Rabat, we ascertained our stakeholders’ needs. Using this, along with our evaluations of the foundouks of Rabat and other cities, we developed context for our project. Focusing on three foundouks, our recommendations included an artisan’s production space and market along with plans to renovate unsafe sections and optimize space.
