In conjunction with the ‘Contemporary Morocco’ exhibit (‘Le Maroc Contemporain’) at the Institut du Monde Arabe in Paris, a giant tent has been constructed on the plaza in front of the building. Designed by Tarik Oualalou and Linna Choi, the tent harmonizes contemporary design and technical innovation with traditional fabrication methods. Constructed from more than 650m² [4,840 square feet] of camel and goat wool woven by female cooperatives in the Saharan desert, the tent serves as an urban landmark and a symbol for the “Contemporary Morocco” exhibit. The rhythm and scale of the tent’s silhouette renders a topographic dimension to the structure, which pays homage to the nomadic traditions of southern Morocco.
