HOUSE OF THE MODERN CRAFTSMAN
‘House of the modern craftsman’ is a complex building at the heart of Bachoura, that cares to keep the identity of Bachoura while embracing the inevitable evolution of BDD. The program aims to link the low tech/craft workers of Bachoura with the high-tech arising start-ups of BDD. To establish this, the program holds workspaces and Fab labs that provide workers with high-tech tools that enable them to engage with BDD Start-up. Moreover, this collaboration offers start-ups with the opportunity to have their models or prototypes built by the Bachoura workers; this provides the Bachoura workers with financial, digital and technical support to further develop their small conventional businesses. Nevertheless, this building caters workshops and classes to teach the public how to better develop their working skills to become qualified workers.
