Architecture is the arrangement of parts that gives something its basic form. It’s fascinating to imagine that the simplest shapes and materials have the ability to create something so complex, abstract, yet intricate.

The architecture in Marrakech, dates back from 110 BCE. The architecture derives from influences of bordering northern African countries, Spain in addition to having Moorish and Islamic components. Though the inspiration comes from various places, the dominant influence is Islam which is exhibited with the display of intricate chiseled carvings of Quranic verses and sophisticated geometric patterns found on most buildings.

The intertwinement of these styles , combined with additional design influences from France and the Berber culture creates visually striking and aesthetically pleasing structures.
