In the past ten years, Morocco has gone through an extensive urban and sociocultural transformation. Unprecedented development projects of tract housing, strip malls, and real estate projects around the suburbs of major cities have been undertaken with remarkable speed.

This project explores city fringes and borders, where the coexistence of contemporary society with nature is best characterized by the constant push of urban space into the land. Aside from this physical evolution/transformation, there is the invisible dimension of ideological and cultural transformation. This project frames the intersections between the pristine land and the urban space, the past and the future, modernity and tradition, and the consequent redefinition of Moroccan identity.
