OUALALOU + CHOI

OUALALOU + CHOI is an architecture firm based in Paris and Casablanca.
Questioning the limited scope of the architect’s traditional role, OUALALOU+CHOI has developed its practice upon the theory that architectural strategies should be integrated into a project long ‘before’ and ‘after’ the conventional intervention of architects. Working closely with clients during site determination, programming, and the economic development of the project, the office engages in the definition of the architectural project from its very inception. OUALALOU+CHOI believes that playing an integral role in the ‘non-architectural’ aspects of a project results in a stronger design solution.
OUALALOU+CHOI has worked on a vast range of programs and scales encompassing museums, luxury hotels and resorts, social housing, sports complexes, and master plans for both existing and new cities. The office has won numerous awards, including the 2012 Young Arab Architects competition, WA Awards, and the EMAP Award for emerging architecture. OUALALOU+CHOI was recently named a finalist for the 2014 AFEX award for an outstanding project undertaken by a French architect outside France. OUALALOU+CHOI’s work has been published internationally and exhibited in both Paris and Casablanca.
