Moroccan Architecture & Heritage Arts “Marrakech”
Heritage Arts is an essential part of the national identity of any city; It is a physical and moral embodiment of this city, as it includes each of the places, landmarks, buildings, and associated views of its holdings, views, etc.
Heritage Arts are also important in understanding the history of any country or city in terms of its history, identity, and people. So peoples seek to preserve it.
On the land of Morocco, passed a lot of different nations and civilizations that left a beautiful and creative imprint in the Moroccan architecture and heritage arts. It is one of the most prominent cities that retain its artistic architectural identity to date is the city of Marrakech, Morocco.
When we look at the city of Marrakech, We will see that its identity is based on Islamic architecture, which contains a combination of the characteristics of Andalusian architecture and Eastern and European architecture. This has made the Moroccan city of Marrakech a unique identity and a distinctive architectural character is unparalleled.
Moroccan architecture is heavily influenced by the nature and colors of the Moroccan Sahara from different and attractive rocks. When you look at the architecture in Marrakech, Morocco, we will see that it is very similar to that found in Spain since the Andalusian era, but with a lot of beauty and creativity.
If we follow modern Moroccan architecture, we find that it is very conservative about its architectural identity in the construction and is influenced by the ancient architectural personality so far. This is reflected in modern buildings and mosques that rely on their old form and architectural identity.
The preservation of the identity of cities and their artistic heritage is, therefore, one of the most important factors of the sustainability of cities. and this is what is being discussed at “Cities’ Identity Through Architecture and Arts (CITAA) – 4th Edition” conference in the conference’s second axis: Heritage Arts: Sustainability, Identities and Public Regulations.
