Research started

I have officially started my 9 month research project about architecture, restorations and artisans in Fez.  This is a detail of the arcade of a 'foundouk' I have begun to draw the plans for. 

As you can see, the railing is in disrepair, but was at one time quite a nice peice of wood carving.  The hotel has been converted into artists studios.  Artisans here work on babouches (traditional Moroccan slippers) and lots of embroidery.
