In 2011, The Metropolitan Museum of Art opened the New Galleries for the Art of the Arab Lands, Turkey, Iran, Central Asia, and Later South Asia, which house the Museum's renowned collection of Islamic art. A vital part of the installation was the Patti Cadby Birch Court, a Moroccan court built by a team of experts—from curators and historians to designers and craftsmen—over many months. Complementing the works on view, which span the past fourteen hundred years, the Moroccan Court provides an experience of space and architecture while demonstrating artistic traditions that still thrive in the Islamic world.
This video documents a marvelous journey from Fez to New York, and the creation of a twenty-first-century court using traditional fifteenth-century methods.
The court was made possible by the Patti and Everett B. Birch Foundation.

This Islamic art taken from the Arabs
They brought it to the north of Africa then built Andaluthia with it
And they still use it luckily
They callled it Nakish in the old days and colored stones called fusayfesah
this is moroccan islamic art. no other country in the whole world does have craftmen who can do this except morocco. why do you think countries all over the world if they need this kind of work, they get the moroccans to do this for them?
I positively love this. I love Morocco. Subhan Allah. I love Moroccan artisans and especially Zillij...when I was younger I was a member of the International Union of Bricklayers and Allied Craftsmen of the USA Tilesetters Union. Moroccans are the best Tilesetters in the World. They almost bejewel a building and its spaces. And to witness, today, those who carry the skills of producing an Alhambra is priceless.

Inner courtyard is totally Asian culture and architect
Alkhwarzam ( Algorithmen in Latin ) and today Bukhara , samarkan, Kashgar ( West china ) were the most scienctific and architectual countries, from China there we muslims brought and learned many things, today arabic caligrapy is taken from chinese art, i traveled a lot around the globe ( many times to morocco and al andalus ) and i am still lerning other cultures and their roots, what i see in this video or i saw personaly, these all thing you can find in bukhara, west china, Bilad al sind ( Makli graveyard , even on sand stones and not on simple gipsum ) and some are in Malaysia. Al andalus was destination of many muslims from the world, these all monuments in andalus are older then any moroccans architect, this was brought to north africa by muslims of andalus when they left andalus,and went to north africa, all architect is in andalus older then morocan architect. if it was built by moroccan then first it should be built in morocco but is not, you can find 1000 of morocans who have asian faces, did you ever ask your self why? because these were the asian muslims who sattled in north africa after christian took over andalus. and there are still many people living in morocco with family name Bukharis.
@Markhor Snakeeater as all the peoples , we have our architecture and culture that mixed with the islamic culture and the result an architecture very beautiful and very unique that u cant find in any other countries , the architecture in middle east or asia or bukhara is very different from the moroccan architecture , and not just the moroccan architecture that is different but also the food , traditional dress , traditional wedding , traditional music , décoration etc
@coldnhot youness and what kind of architect had morocco before islam and muslims came? answer : Nothing, you are proud moroccan i respect it, but first do comparitive study and travel in other countries then you will find out what is your and what eblongs to other, people like you always even think that the Number 1 2 34567890 are arabic number lol
The architecture in morocco is very différent to any other kind of architecture in the whol world , there is nothing like this in asia or in orient and in Boukhara u have an persian Iraqi influence in the architecture ,trust me it is so easy to distinguich the moroccan architecture and from the first look ,
@Ali Hassan when you read book of ibn batuta , you will find that he took so many people from sindh and hind, check makli grave yard , see the handy craft and design on the graves, which is stone work, and very hard, same design you will find in alhambra on gypsam walls which is easy to sculp. Khitanos ( spanisch gypsys) were also from sindh and rajastan desert, check their music and dance , which is related to clapping hands of qawali, and dance related to ghatak dance. bro this all has to do with islamic culture, not only arab culture, real arabs are from arabian penusuela and they were on high ranking and ruling elite only
Years ago, I took a guided tour with one of the Met's volunteer docents who took us through the arts of the Islamic world. At the end, a young couple thanked him for showing such respect for their history and culture. It was very moving and I still think of their gracious acknowledgement of his time and effort. Thank you - wonderful video.
le seul pays dans le monde arabo-musulman qui a pu conserver l’héritage Andalous ,pas seulement dans
le domaine architectural mais aussi dans bien d'autres domaine , culturel ,artistique , musique , cuisine ,
traditions et habitudes et j'en passe , les grandes villes impériales du Maroc telles que Marrakech ,
Tanger, Titouan , Oujda ,Fes, Meknès et bien d'autres en témoignent ,
C est de l architecture marocaine , il y a des gens qui essaye de voler notre patrimoine en répétant que le Maroc n est q un héritier et copieur des omeyade , et je parle pas des algériens mais des jaloux du moyen orient
Baked lime, they bake it in pottery type ovens.
Its called Marrakech lime, it has this very peculiar hue and soft texture.
Moroccan artisans used it in my bathroom as a wall treatment called tadellakt. We've had it for 15 years, as good as new, and it even grew character, gorgeous look and feel to it. This style is outside of time. So it can never be outdated
I sooooo much love Morocco, I was flabbergasted with the amount of artistic representation in this country. These people are amazing, I would love to make something like this in my house.
Now tell someone in the west to accomplish this, THAT WOULD SIMPLY BE IMPOSSIBLE.
If you want something exotic you'll have an much easier time to replicate what you see in these videos yourself instead of paying someone to do it. Watching others work can be rewarding, but never as rewarding as watching your own work after you are done with it.
Hhhhh you always wish to change history
But unfortunately you can’t
Arabs brought this to the north of Africa and then made Andaluthia in Spain
Please stop changing history
And call it yours
No way its Moroccans originally
It was brought to you by the Arabs in alhazeera Iraq and Syria
It’s mentioned even in Western books
If you're going to record something that has so much fine detail as islamic art, then give it the justice it deserves, and record in at least 1080 so it shows up and isn't just blurred out like a lot of the inner courtyard was here. Love islamic art.
the prophet .sw. named us *Ahlo Almarreb* the people of the sunset and Morocco is the name of the best quality leather made by the blessed hands of * Ahlo Almarreb * they shall remain on the truth till the day of judgement according to our beloved prophet .sw. who said only what is right .
@Andaloussi Wow. No history? Funny joke. Morrocco is a country of Drugs and Prostitution. 60% of your economy comes from tourism, you have an Israeli embassy in Rabat. The polisario are fucking you from the bottom. Spain still has 3 cities in Morrocco till this day. Algeria is the country of 1 million martyrs and real men. Go get your sister from the white man and khaliji in the hotel.
Algeria has no history. No architecture. You were colonized by the whole world.
Avoid spitting on Morocco, which has existed for 1200 years. Remember that France created your country and your borders.

As a child, there was a portrait in our family home in Paris that I always loved. Today, it’s known as Maya with Doll – but to me it was just a portrait of my mother, albeit a remarkable one. “Your grandfather was a painter,” she would say, whenever the subject of the canvas, one of many that hung around the house, came up in discussion. It was only when I began school, and whispers about my heritage started to follow me, that I realised what an understatement that was. My grandfather was far more than a painter. He was the defining figure of 20th-century art – and, as I would learn later from years of academic study, a true genius. It was a revelation that would shape the course of my life in many ways. When Picasso died – in 1973, the year before I was born – he left behind 45,000 works, not to mention personal objects and correspondence.
