Riad Mirage Club (Morocco, 2017) is the fifth volume of the long-term and ongoing documentary project 'Future Rust, Future Dust (2016 - )', which aims to analyse the urban and architectural impact of financial crisis. Throughout a visual approach combining aestheticism and graphism, Riad Mirage Club reports the impact of the 2008 financial crisis which directly affected Morocco. Marrakech, main touristic destination, experienced an outbreak of property programs, characterized by a strong demand and soaring prices, in an unregulated area where everyone could become a promoter.
