SynthesisThe main objective of this international event is to exchange between national and international experts and to deepen discussions on issues of conservation and enhancement of Mediterranean architectural heritage in general, and built heritage with local materials in particular.
The Mediterranean basin has a rich and diverse architectural heritage that reflects the ingenuity and creativity of artisans as well as the cultural richness of this region of the world. Today, energy and ecological challenges in the building sector are encouraging operators to replace conventional building materials with eco-materials. This has led to a renewed interest in building with local materials in recent years (earth, stones, wood, etc.), due to their durability and ecological character.
Draa-Tafilalet region, El-Rachidia is the capital town, is home to a very rich and diverse earthen architectural heritage consisting of ksours, kasbahs, mosques, fortifications and granaries. The rehabilitation of this heritage can have a significant positive impact on the local population, regional economy, cultural heritage and tourism industry. Rehabilitation projects often require local labor to carry out construction, restoration and rehabilitation work. Once rehabilitated, these structures can become tourist attractions, generating revenue for local and regional businesses in the tourism, industrial and agricultural sectors. They can therefore help preserve and promote the cultural heritage of the region.
ProceedingsThe best papers have been published in Materials Research Proceedings (MRP), together with some papers from RIPAM 9. This publication is OPEN ACECSS mode, and it will be indexed in CPCI (part of Web of Science), SCOPUS, Google Scholar, Inspec, CAS.
