While validating our new member from Granada, Antonio Jiménez Torrecillas, Spanish National Prize of Architecture, we discovered his beautiful interview for the documentary “Spain Alight”, directed by Jorge Cosmen, talking about the influence of light for Spanish creatives.

Two other relevant figures of the Spanish artistic world are interviewed: the artist Daniel Canogar and Joan Gaspar, industrial designer.

We loved the film and especially the interview to Antonio Jiménez (at 12' minute).

His sensibility, his reflections about light and architecture... the way he explains it, so poetic and understanding at the same time. His words reminds us the subtil book of Japanese writer Tanizaki, "In Praise of Shadows"... that cosy semi-darkness. 

After the interview, "El Bañuelo", the XI Century Arab baths in Granada, will be in your wish list too, for sure... with "a light difficult to forget" as Antonio comments.

Enjoy this interesting 42' documentary, worth watching!
