Architectural Landscapes between Light and Shade | 21. – 27. October 2018

The journey will bring us amongst other places to the Palacio de Viana in Cordoba, the Alhambra in Granada and the Alcazar of Sevilla. Various tools of perception will enable us to capture these very unique architectural landscapes and bring parts of them back to Zürich.

The culture of Andalusia has been shaped by it’s relation to light and shade. The scarcity of shade and water sculpted its architetural landscape. Throughout Andalusia’s manifold history these conditions have led to specifically adapted forms and spaces.

We will be meandering on the fringe of architecture and landscape design, exploring the rich cultural melange of the European and the Arab.
