Morocco: Decoration, Interiors, Design

£9.99

Product description

Riads and villas, mosaics and textiles, mountain and desert, old and new, Morocco is a country of myriad influences and intriguing contradictions. Mark Luscombe-Whyte and Dominic Bradbury have travelled Morocco, from coastal Tangier in the north, to Fez, Casablanca and Marrakech, through the Atlas mountains and the edge of the Sahara, exploring kasbahs and townhouses, palaces and mud huts, carpentry and pottery as well as the work of contemporary architects and designers. "Morocco" begins with an overview of the design history, examining landscape and architecture, the people and their culture. Chapters cover the design styles of country, coastal, traditional, colonial, revival and modern, highlighting the unusual as well as the archetypal. creating a source book of ideas and inspiration. The photography captures the geometric patterns prescribed by Islam and elaborated by the Andalusian Moors, the Art Deco style of the French Protectorate, the traditional designs of the Berbers and the sparse, organic architecture of the desert, while the text expands on the history and traditions built into these houses.

Slightly scuffed front cover, otherwise in very good condition.
