Back to Morocco: As in up-and-coming Turkey, the dream of new cities is strong here outside of Tangier, Ceuta and Rabat – especially in the old cities‘ provisional and peripheral zones. The homogeneous new housing settlements in the country‘s north contrast sharply with the small-town settlements, which with their irregular, cubical lean-tos and extensions are easily adaptable to familial and demographic changes. As a legitimising narrative for the new housing, the emerging upper middle classes cite global lifestyle, Europe and consumerism.
