Villas and Courtyard Houses of Morocco

ISBN: 9780500512319 (HB - E)

From the palaces of Fez to the riads, or courtyard dwellings, of Marrakesh, from the trading posts of Essaouira to the Kasbahs of the south, this book seeks out the most singular living spaces in Morocco, a country blessed with one of the richest architectural heritages in North Africa. Some of these spaces bear witness to hispano-Moorish splendours, others are vibrant with the influence of the Sahara, but all of them are temples of the art of living. Corinner Verner explores the archetypes of the Moroccan built environment in over 200 glorious colour photographs, interspersed with numerous essays exploring a number of related topics, from the decorative arts of Morocco, the concept of the garden as 'metaphors for paradise' to contemporary fashions and developments.
