20th November 2019, "FEZ Lessons" book launch!

We are happy to welcome you to the Book Launch of laba's publication 'FEZ Lessons'.

Fez Lessons: Industrious Habitat is the result of a teaching and research project of Laboratory Basel (laba). The book explores Fez’s urban fabric, relaying a compelling story of how the city has been shaped and reshaped over time. The findings are visualized in striking images, graphics, and maps and followed by proposals for architectural interventions that address key issues by facilitating alternate forms of association and community.

Given the growing stream of international investment, the constant enticement of tourism, and a worldwide revival of nationalism, interventions focus on these challenges, among others, raising questions about identity, authenticity, tradition, globalization, and the use of local resources.

As this event will take place in Zurich, the presentations will be held in German.

We look forward to seeing you there!
