Florence Square is situated in a strategic area in the new town of Fez. The remodeling of Florence Square in Fez aims to create a space for encounters and meetings at a pedestrian scale and the scale of the neighborhood, but also a place clearly identifiable as a representative part of the modern Fez. By designing the square, we were inspired by a strong and symbolic figure in the Florentine urban landscape, the octagonal form of the Baptistery of San Giovanni. We felt it essential to bring strong architectural elements to Florence square to give it an urban presence and limit it spatially.
