Next week-end we will talk about colonialism héritage in Moroccan cities. Exhibitions, round tables and tour guide in Fez (Morocco). I will specifically speak about the city of Tetouan and what we can learn from that process, in order to do not make the same mistakes in contemporary Moroccan cities.

Fez-Merzouga ETSAM by Carlos Perez Marin

Trip with the students of the architecture school of Madrid (ETSAM) and their teacher Marta Maiz.

We had the opportunity of visiting the city of Fez, the archeological site of Volubilis, the dunes of Merzouga and the ksar of Mezguita (Rissani).

During our stay in Merzouga the students had also the opportunity to collaborate with Spanish artist, Ruben Martin de Lucas (www.martindelucas.com) on his research "burocracia".

We would like to thank Ahmed Laaroussi, head of the architecture school of Fez (Université Privée de Fès) for letting us discover the medina (with Mr Benkirane).
