The project references the flat, horizontal tents of the Berbers, in which one moves bent over and sits on the floor. The hyperbolic geometry creates a series of spaces that, through the translucency of the surfaces, combine with the simple beauty of the environment and whose repetitive arrangement captures the adaptive patterns and ornaments that are omnipresent in the Arab world.
