Maryam El Moumni

Architect DENA/Cultural Heritage Graduate
Participates in 1 Session

Maryam El Moumni holds a Master’s Degree in Architecture with five years of relevant experience in Morocco. Growing up in Kénitra, a typical industrial city, industrial buildings and sites fascinated her in the way they shape their urban landscapes and communities. In this regard, local government officials and the civil society recognize her visionary graduation project on reclaiming the city’s waterfronts and their docklands, which triggered multiple initiatives to reshape the city. As a result, she was involved in the assessment of multiple large-scale projects as an architect of Kénitra’s Municipal Department of Planning, including the feasibility study of some notable renewal projects.

Maryam’s fascination with the Built Heritage led her to pursue an additional Dual Master’s Degree in World Heritage Studies and Cultural Heritage in Germany and Australia. Her commitment to understanding the character of Industrial Heritage shows up again through her graduation work on Telecommunication Heritage and Europe 1 Transmitter Building, which is the subject of her participation in the TICCIH2022 Congress. She previously published a contribution about this building in the collection of the Werkbund of Saarland “Résonances. Architectures à l’origine de l’Europe 1945-1965”.

Maryam settled in Canada in 2020, recently obtained her architecture academic certification, and is looking forward to continuing her career in architecture and heritage.

Si la vallée du canal de Lachine a été le berceau de l’industrialisation canadienne, la géographie industrielle métropolitaine ne s’y est pas confinée, peu s’en faut, Outre les grandes concentrations d’entreprises des quartiers centraux, elle est constituée des réseaux infrastructuraux, d’une douzaine de centrales hydroélectriques et des ensembles manufacturiers disséminés dans une quinzaine de petites villes aujourd’hui intégrées dans l’aire métropolitaine. La conférence proposera un surv...

In this lecture, I would like to talk about deindustrialised communities, heritage and memory in the context of right-wing populism. Drawing on studies of memory and heritage, I argue that right-wing populists have cornered the market on talking about the past of deindustrialised communities. They have successfully misrepresented this rich and complex history to fuel rage, resentment, fear and reactionary nostalgia. Indeed, ‘the past’, and in particular the industr...

In the refusal of people in communities abandoned by industrial capital to abandon their own places, we can read an implicit critique of the mobility and unaccountability of capital, raised by those who were once inside (however tenuously or uncomfortably) and now find themselves marginalized, “left behind.” The desire to catch up again, whether through attracting new investment or transvaluing abandoned sites as tourist attractions, makes this an essentially conservative critique that is ...
