Urban Design Marrakech - Peculiar Area
Hi, I am an architecture student doing my final project in marrakech in an area just opposite bab doukkala but outside the medina. It is a very preculiar area because it has the identity of the medina but is outside the medina. The area is limited by Avenue Ahmed Ouaqala and Avenues des Nations Unies (just south-west of Place Bab Doukkala).

Does anyone know why an area could be designed like this? Is there any particular reason?

If anyone can help me, I would really appreciate it. My email is igrigr@yahoo.es.

Thanks in advance!

Nacho, You could try looking at old maps, the older the better.
