Lemay has won the prestigious international competition to redesign the corniches of Morocco’s Casablanca coast, which include the new seaside promenade of the Hassan II Mosque and the Ain Diab corniche. This win reinforces Lemay’s international presence and once again showcases Quebec’s creativity and design abroad.
Lemay’s project is destined to become a landmark destination in Morocco. Led by Lemay Principal and International Development Director René Hubert and designed by the LemayLAB, this win further confirms the company’s ability to create tangible value for collectivities.
Lemay’s proposal stood out with its transdisciplinary approach combining broad expertise in international development, sustainable development, architecture, landscape architecture, urban design and graphic design, edging out submissions by high-profile firms in the U.S., Europe and Australia. For the purposes of the project, Lemay collaborated with Moroccan firm Geodata, which specializes in topography and engineering.
The completion of the first phase of the Hassan II Mosque’s seaside boardwalk is scheduled for end of 2017, with the Ain Diab corniche inauguration planned for the following year.
