In order to ensure theeconomic and environmental sustainability of Place Lalla Yeddounapragmatic interventions at ground level that allow all publicservices on site to be upgraded have been proposed. New serviceswill help support subsequent redevelopment efforts and must beimplemented at the preliminary stages of work when costs can bemaintained at a minimum, allowing limited resources to be used mostefficiently. Once new services are installed, new surface pavementmust necessarily be built. This becomes a valuable opportunity tocreate a unique design that provides a new identity for the LallaYeddouna neighborhood while remaining modest and respectful ofexisting structures and congruent with artistic traditions based ongeometry and patterns.
