Bahia Palace riad garden courtyard space, Marrakesh, Morocco
Bahia Palace riad garden courtyard space, Marrakesh, Morocco, 2016–04-21.
The name Bahia means “brilliance” and the Bahia palace was built with the intention of being the most brilliant palace of its time. Built by two different generations - Si Moussa and his son, the overall design and layout is slightly random and unorganised. The materials used to make the intricate displays of zelij, ceramic and wood work through out the palace were sourced from across the Maghreb.
