Casablanca is a city in constant mutation, in perpetual movement. It is a city of many ends and beginnings.
Loading … Casa (Hotline), through its format and modus operandi, mirrors this cyclical energy. A still, inert body comes to life, gradually and then with increasing speed, going through distinct stages: excess, overheating, exhaustion, and finally, death. Before being born once again, relentlessly.

Building the identity of Casablanca delves back in time. Based upon history and myth in equal parts, this map is an evocation of the experience and memory of a city. Tracing the mobility of its inhabitants and the metamorphosis of its neighborhoods, it becomes the portrait of a city whose evolution has occurred through transhumance and mutation.
