Taguiri/Rutz studio in Morocco

Peter Taguiri (Professor, Architecture) and Stephan Rutz (Critic, Architecture) led their Advanced Studio in field work on site in Morocco this Spring break. The Studio is tackling how to renovate a historic souk now classified as an United Nations’ World Heritage Site in a manner consistent with local custom, the needs of the inhabitants to use the structures as both domicile and work space, environmental health and safety concerns, and contemporary sustainable practices.¬† Stephan Rutz is visiting RISD from Switzerland this semester http://www.rutzarchitekten.ch/
