Art Deco ArchitectureWhen the French created their plan for Casablanca they wanted the city to embody the best of modern Western architecture and traditional Moroccan design. The result is a style called architecture mauresque, blending the facades of French Art Deco with Islamic arches and tile work. Casablanca's post office, palace of justice and Al-Maghrib Bank are all beautiful examples, best explored on a walking tour of the city center.
