AE Interest:

-Creates a new entrance to the Palace of Charles V (Alhambra) of Spain; contrasts light and warmth with dark and cold; aimed to disguise the massive building and enhance the castle-fortress [2]; one challenge is how to excavate the land without causing damage to the site itself; the main entrance is located underground and utilizes light-wells to illuminate the interior of the building; designed to blend into the surrounding landscape [3].
