Université Euro-Méditerranéenne de Fès
The competition to design a campus for the Euro-Mediterranean University of Fez (EURO-MED) was launched in late February 2014 by the Union for the Mediterranean, a partnership that aims to create unity among Euro-Mediterranean countries. The objective of the project was to compose an environment that established a platform for discourse and correspondence between the Mediterranean’s diverse cultures, as well as to provide a medium through which to collaborate with universities in European countries. Morocco was the chosen location for the new university because of its balance of Arabic, African, and European influence. The 17-hectare site is located on the outskirts of Fez, Morocco’s third largest city.
