Moroccan Style Architecture

It was our 7th day in Morocco and a lovely experience to visit the historical and exotic Moroccan buildings. The geometric and symmetric patterns probably has became one of the signature characters of Moroccan architectures. The Islamic decoration makes great use of geometric patterns which have developed over the centuries. They are usually distinguished from the arabesque, the term for decoration in Islamic art based on curving and branching vegetal forms. But sometimes foliage and linear geometric patterns are combined in a single design, and some purely abstract linear patterns adopt designs that seem clearly derived from vegetal arabesque ones. The geometric designs have evolved into beautiful and highly complex patterns, still used in many modern day settings.
