Abstract:Alhambra managed to inspire contemplation within my self and brought to the forefront of my consciousness the aesthetics and nature of harmony. I was overwhelmed by a sense of complete tranquillity, inspired to take my shoes off and walk with direct connection to the essence of these palace grounds. My everyday understanding of the home was brought into question, as even without all the amenities of everyday life I felt welcome, safe and contented. This excerpt from my journal during my last visit to Alhambra, Spain, was the starting point for this exploration. I was inspired to enquire into the reality of what made me so 'content' within the grounds of the Nasrid Palaces. I needed to know more about the foundations of such a sensually strong piece of architecture. How could a building speak to me so powerfully and simultaneously evoke such tranquillity To discover the essence of this architectural solace was going to involve a phenomenological undertaking. So as to understand this fully, I needed to return to the time in which Alhambra was constructed and unravel the intellectual capacity of its pioneering scholars, whom I believed must have been inspirational and representational of the community and artisans of its time.
