This project deals with the issue of the sponges in the city of Zarzis and the architectural space that must be dedicated to it. The sponge is a marine animal that almost became extinct in the late years, impacting not only the balance of our ecosystem but a whole history of several coastal cities in the world. After addressing the issue on its various historical, economic and social aspects, I have designed an architectural project that meets the needs of the various stakeholders and is embodied in a sustainable approach. Our center of valorization Zimocca tells the genesis of the history of the sponge by raising awareness of the general public and will be a vector of promotion and valorization of the Tunisian sponge at the national and international scale.
This project has a part for scientists, a part for public awareness.
The construction of the building is made of a three-dimensional primary structure another secondary for bracing as well as an envelope in GRC.
