Quartier des Habous, Casablanca, Morocco. Built in the 1930's in the style of a medieval medina for low-to-middle-income residents, as apposed to the affluent Art Deco city center.

You are so right! There are some good ideas here but again without the knowledge of proportion, detail, correct materials (not sure as I can't really tell by the illustrations) etc. it will be hash up and again open to ridicule by modernists. If institutions want to build in a traditional style they MUST ensure they get architects who understand the important principals that define a good building. If you look at many of the recent non-modernist U.S. University buildings it easy to see that the architects know exactly what they are doing and the results are outstanding.
