The first meeting of the “Savoir-faire traditionnels de la construction dans le sud de la Méditerranée” program took place on July 6 at the Union for the Mediterranean headquarters in Barcelona.
INTBAU Spain is developing this project for the Union for the Mediterranean. Its objective is to identify and promote good practices for raising awareness, preserving and promoting traditional architecture and building trades in four southern Mediterranean countries: Morocco, Tunisia, Mauritania and Algeria.
This first meeting brought together a large number of international experts in the fields of traditional construction and architecture, as well as a delegation of public representatives from each of the four countries involved.
The program will be followed in the fall by two workshops, the first in Morocco and the second in Tunisia.
