Major Project Site

Ourika Valley, Atlas Mountains, Morocco

The Site for our Major Thesis project is located in the Ourika Valley up in the Atlas Mountains.
The valley itself is a volatile natural force. Every spring a torrent of water crashes through the valley, washing away makeshift bridges and sometimes homes. The river plays a paradoxical role in the lives of the Berber people, providing life sustaining water but also manifesting itself as a destructive force.
