Thanks to you and to your great blog
archipostcard.blogspot.com I discovered the fascinating
work of French-Moroccan architect Jean-François
Zevaco. It is hard to believe there is not much published
information about his work. Buildings like the
Physiotherapy Center and the Clubhouse both in Tit
Mellil, the Sidi Harazem Thermal Bath Complex in Fez,
the Beni-Mellal Courthouse in Beni-Mellal, or the Fire
Station in Agadir, deserve our admiration and better
"There is too much conformity in contemporary architecture.
I like to think of architecture as an individual creative
expression; I get more pleasure out of my work if I carry
through my own convictions rather than pursue a dogma
outlined by some other architect." (Edward Durell Stone)
"La arquitectura es una disciplina de servicio en la que
se empieza por considerar a la persona que va a utilizarla"
(Pedro Ramirez Vazquez)
"We might discover the eternal character of all architecture,
that which is expressed differently in each age but that is in
the end its most interesting aspect" (Aris Konstantinidis)
"Only when a work is not explainable other than in terms
of itself can we say that we are in the presence of art.
This ineffable quality is the hallmark of an authentic work"
