Morocco: A Rooftop Perspective

Satellite dishes like eyes on the sky on a roof in Morocco

In February 2013 I was in Morocco with my team for a week. The food was fantastic and we had booked a whole building for our lodgings in Marakesh.

From the rooftop, I gazed at the endless sprawl of buildings, interrupted only by the majestic mountains in the horizon. On almost every roof, a satellite dish pointed up towards the sky, a striking contrast to the humble and rustic materials of the local architecture.

The view from the Grand Parade Car Park is a wonderful one in every direction. Rooftops and the architectural sites of the city can all be seen from there. In this view you can only see the rooftops of the city’s shops and old buildings but in the middle distance is the construction work on the block by Emmett Place (featured a few days ago).
