#MENA: Mediterranean/Middle Eastern architecture: Old vs. New

I've always liked Mediterranean architecture, both old and new are amazing. But I kinda like the old Mediterranean style (with the stone, arches, and iron details). Post some pics of your country's old and new architecture if you want as well. Here's some pics of architecture of Palestine/Israel.

There is something in that yellow stone. Some warmth, utter elegance and beauty.

No offense but a lot of this old architecture was actually built by empires of the Romans, Byzantine, Ottomans, and other European nations who replicated their styles in this region.

...and the Palestinians are the mixed descendants of these empires. These israeli's just cannot leave any of our threads alone.

Wow very stunning indeed

I couldn't find good pictures of old Moroccan architecture. The alleys in the old Medinas are usually narrow and very confusing. The old houses will look simple almost poor from the outside except from the spectacular door/gate. And they will be just huge and splendid inside with beautiful Moorish carvings on the walls and the ceilings. The middle of the houses will be an open area with a fountain usually.

The cool thing in Morocco is that even the newer hourses will have old style furniture and carvings depending on the person's budget.

Here's an example:- (my grandparents' house)
House from the outside: I don't have a pic of the main gate though.
(the house is to the left)

(house is to the right)



And inside
(main hallway)

(main area- there's no fountain. The fountain is in another area- the "yard"

Some of the pictures that Isr.il posted are Palestinian architecture. During the 1948, many of the Zionist immigrant stole the building and Palestinian homes. There are many ruined Palestinian houses pre-1948 in Jaffa, Haifa, Akko, many cities in Israel today. Israelis claim it is Israeli architecture. Like they tried to steal the Palestinian Orient House in Jerusalem. The only Israeli architecture are the modern building in Tel Aviv and few other places.
