Unformatted text preview: MOROCCO City​ ​Project:​ ​Casablanca 【​ ​BASICS​ ​】― Year​ ​city​ ​was​ ​founded:​ ​10th​ ​century​ ​B.C.​ ​by​ ​the​ ​Berbers​ ​¹ Mayor​ ​/​ ​Executive:​ ​Abdelaziz​ ​El​ ​Omari​ ​² 【​ ​POPULATION​ ​DISCUSSION​ ​】― Population:​ ​4,270,750​ ​(2014,​ ​city​ ​pop.​ ​only)​ ​³ Population​ ​change:​ ​1.3%​ ​per​ ​year​ ​⁷ Percentage​ ​of​ ​population​ ​that​ ​is​ ​made​ ​up​ ​in​ ​city:​ ​~13% Does​ ​“urban​ ​primacy”​ ​exist?​:​ ​No,​ ​because​ ​the​ ​next​ ​two​ ​largest​ ​cities​ ​in​ ​Morocco​ ​are​ ​Fez​ ​(2.4 million​ ​in​ ​2014)​ ​and​ ​Tangier​ ​(1.7​ ​million​ ​in​ ​2014)⁴.​ ​They​ ​have​ ​a​ ​much​ ​smaller​ ​population compared​ ​to​ ​Casablanca,​ ​but​ ​they​ ​are​ ​not​ ​three​ ​times​ ​less​ ​than​ ​it. Which​ ​“urban​ ​revolution”​ ​contributed​ ​to​ ​its​ ​growth​ ​and​ ​economy?:​ ​The​ ​First​ ​Urban Revolution​​ ​had​ ​the​ ​most​ ​influence​ ​to​ ​Morocco’s​ ​growth.​ ​Both​ ​the​ ​Phoenicians​ ​and​ ​Romans​ ​used it​ ​as​ ​a​ ​port​ ​town​ ​for​ ​trade​ ​but​ ​fertile​ ​land​ ​around​ ​the​ ​city​ ​helped​ ​to​ ​develop​ ​an​ ​agricultural​ ​base. Although​ ​many​ ​Jews​ ​fled​ ​to​ ​Morocco,​ ​several​ ​Arab​ ​tribes​ ​settled​ ​in​ ​the​ ​city​ ​also​ ​to​ ​help​ ​boost the​ ​population​ ​and​ ​economy.​ ​Additionally,​ ​its​ ​status​ ​as​ ​a​ ​port​ ​town​ ​provided​ ​a​ ​safe​ ​haven​ ​for pirates​ ​and​ ​privateers. 【​ ​URBAN​ ​FORM​ ​】― Image​ ​provided​ ​by​ ​Joseph​ ​L.​ ​Murphy​ ​Photography​ ​⁵ Image​ ​provided​ ​by​ ​Google​ ​Maps​ ​⁶ Which​ ​model​ ​of​ ​urban​ ​form​ ​is​ ​most​ ​applicable​ ​to​ ​layout​ ​of​ ​city?:​ ​Hoyt​ ​Sector​ ​Model Sources ¹​ ​“Virtual​ ​Jewish​ ​World:​ ​Casablanca,​ ​Morocco.”​​ ​Casablanca,​ ​Morocco​ ​Jewish​ ​History​ ​Tour​, Sparks!,​ ​www.jewishvirtuallibrary.org/casablanca-morocco-jewish-history-tour.
