The Moroccan Indigo Garden that Welcomes Artists And Designers
An archaeological museum and the location of the Islamic Art Museum
Jardin Majorelle or the Garden of Morocco is a twelve-acre botanical garden in Marrakech, Morocco. The building was designed by the French artist Jacques Majorelle in the 1920s and 1930s when Morocco was under French protectorate. Since its opening to the public in 1947, it has been a home to many artists. The famous French fashion designer Yves Saint-Laurent and Pierre Bergé owned the garden from 1980. The Moroccan garden is now an archaeological museum and the location of the Islamic Art Museum of Marrakech. The most stunning quality of the building is the famous predisposition of the Moroccan interior architecture to beautiful colors and shapes which look as beautiful live, as they look on photos or paintings.
