Jean-François Zevaco (1916–2003) is great French-Moroccan modernist. His paper models are so exciting as his real realizations.

Now in the collection of FRAC Centre, these three architectural models represent architect`s expressive sculptural style of the 1950s and 1960s when Casablanca and whole Morocco were exciting centre of the radical modernist ideas similar to organic architecture in South America. Zevaco was one of the leading architects of the era designing luxury villas as well as big public commissions. French 1950s design school is also very evident in his designs.
