I have always been drawn to the structural elements of Moroccan Architecture such as domed ceilings, high, curved archways and keyhole-shaped naves. Morocco was influenced by the use of basic semi circle arches in Roman and Byzantine architecture. Naturally Moroccans developed more intricate and intriguing arch shapes such as the ogee, horseshoe, and pointed arch with each shape symbolizing something different such as "keeping evil out."
