Silvio d’Ascia Architecture Wins Competition for Morocco Railway Station

15 March, 2014

-By Holly O'Dell


Paris firm Silvio d’Ascia Architecture, in collaboration with Omar Kobité Architecture and Erik Giudice Architects, has won the competition to design a high-speed railway station in Kenitra, Morocco. A triangular grid framework referencing Moroccan architecture will form the building’s shape and provide shading for travelers.



Organized around the central ticket office and boutique spaces for passengers, the ground floor features escalators leading to the grand “passerelle,” or bridgeway. Providing a route to the train platforms, the bridgeway will house waiting areas, shops, and kiosks.



The station also will employ rainwater recovery techniques, forced-air ventilation in lieu of conventional air-conditioning, and plantings for passive thermal protection.
