Conservation and Rehabilitation Plan for the Kasbah of Taourirt
Documentation and Emergency Stabilization
The first phase of the Conservation and Rehabilitation Plan (CRP) comprises an architectural survey of the entire site using appropriate and suitable documentation techniques.
Using the site survey, the CRP has assessed priority repair needs of the Caid Residence and Stara sectors of the Kasbah, particularly basic remedial measures such as debris removal, drainage and roof repairs, shoring of weakened walls, and pest removal, among others.
Included in this work is the documentation of wall paintings located in the Caid Residence, which feature traditional patterns and motifs painted in bright colors.
This phase provides training workshops on aspects related to the documentation of earthen sites.
