THE WATCHTOWWER – AZIZA CHAOUNI

Aziza Chaouni Projects was commissioned to design a viewing tower for the Moroccan Ministry of the Environment, from which park rangers will oversee the protected forests of the Taounate region. Illegal animal poaching, fires and tree cutting are rampant problems that requires daily supervision. Located amid the beautiful Rif mountain range, the tower is completely off the grid: it collects its own water in an underground reservoir, produces its own energy and recycles its waste.
