The international airport of Marrakech, the Marrakech Menara Airport, is one of the largest and busiest of Morocco, with international flights serving many European cities as well as domestic flights.

For this project the E2A Architecture studio developed a new terminal extension for the airport. The extension presents a space where the light comes in filtered by the arabesques that cover the windows and enriches the visual contact between the inside and the outside, a structure that’s reminiscent of typical wire mesh combined with some modern touches.
