"In this volume, authors Jean-Louis Cohen and Monique Eleb trace the metamorphosis of Casablanca from a languishing port into a modern metropolis that was hailed as an exciting laboratory for architectural and visual experimentation.
With over 680 illustrations, including hundreds of previously unpublished photographs culled from archives in France and Morocco, Casablanca offers a comprehensive catalog of the city's most significant buildings and neighborhoods - including the bidonvilles (shantytowns), the villas and beachside resorts, the distinctive squares laid out during the French Protectorate, and the medina."--BOOK JACKET.
