The Firefighters Tower

caserne des pompiers 1963

The tower of the firefighters is located next to the central police station, not far from the Ibn Zeidoun garden.

The architect was French: Jean-François Zavaco. He has built the firefighters tower, the central post office and many schools… The specificity of this tower is the use of concrete. This tower givesan impression of strength. It’s like a block of rough concrete standing in the middle of the city to reassure its inhabitants.
