Ghost of Casablanca is a living "(DARKITECTURE)" that was born out of sinister deeds of the people from the city of Casablanca in Morocco. Its main objective is to affect and reflect the life and personality of people of Casablanca. It is created to reveal the dark side of the city that is widely famous around the world for its antique culture and history. The majority of Moroccans believe in the existence of ghosts, they can affect possess destroy harm the life of humans. In fact, some Moroccans they tend to use ghosts for their service by either harming a person or benefitting from them. I created this living architecture to challenge these sinister people and their practice by my creation (GHOST OF CASABLANCA).
Ghost of Casablanca is a completely different type of architecture that is provocative and challenging to understand it’s intent for being built. It makes people realize how architecture can be driven in a whole different way from being a rigorous meaningless structure. This is a new path of seeing the design build industry from a different perspective. The idea behind the design of Ghost of Casablanca is to change the approach to the world of architecture.
The function of this building is a gigantic shopping mall that will be tourists and local destination. It has a high potential to be one of the most visited iconic buildings around the world.
