This publication aims to generate an open arena for debate dealing with memory and public space; issues which are highly complex in both theoretical and practical terms.

Journal of a gadabout (6) by Dr. A. Remesar

DSC08204I recommend a visit to Rabat. Ahead of they conclude the works of what we call “the third Rabat”.

The first is the victorious Ribat (Ribat al-Fath), as stated in the monolith of entry into the old limits. It includes the medina and the city center designed by Prost following the recommendations of Forestier, both two under the orders of Marshal Lyautey.

A center expanded in several districts of French flavour: Ocean – site of the corniche suffering remodelling and pressure of the projects Kasr al Bahr and Sephira; Les Orangers, Aviation, Belvedaire… and the most bourgeois of all Agdal Hay Riad. Continue reading Rabat. Royal Patronage for urban art
