The New Marrakesh Menara Airport, Illuminated by Martinelli Luce
    The New Marrakesh Menara Airport, Illuminated by Martinelli Luce

    Today, Marrakesh is at the center of far-reaching projects to conserve the historic heritage of the old medina; the city will benefit from an extensive requalification plan, the aim of which is to recover the ‘look’ of the city as it is expressed in its architecture; to restore the city’s historic buildings and to valorize its urban fabric. One element in this larger requalification plan is the opening of the new Marrakesh Menara Airport terminal. The stunning 30-meter diameter glass dome located in the main access to the terminal is illuminated with a series of impressive lighting installations created using the Circular Pol and Circular Pol XXL fixtures designed by Emiliana Martinelli for Martinelli Luce. The overall result is an extraordinary example of harmony between tradition and the modern concepts that inspired the well-known architectural firm of Abdou Lahlou & Associates to reproduce ‘clouds’ in various area of the terminal and to create plays of light with white and RGB LED sources. Menara is Morocco’s second-largest airport and, thanks to this extraordinary project, it will provide meaningful support to the city’s socio-economic development and expansion of its tourist trade. With addition of the new terminal, Menara will be able to serve 9 million passengers annually and thus provide a valid response to the growing demand for international connections. Sustainable reorganization has made Marrakesh one of the world’s most popular tourist destinations as a city synonymous with ecotourism.
