The gong tower in the monastery by @tths_architects. Very pleased to see this small but complicated build coming to a close with the final snagging.

Very pleased to be part of this great book @townhallbook edited by @futuredawn81 here we at the launch of the book at the GLA (which was the building I wrote a piece about) just before Christmas. Check out the book.

Mass.

The split bar. Apparently two brothers owned the a bar together and fell out and split the bar into two down the middle. On the other side (to the right where you can’t see) is another bar, like a reflection layout of this one.

Inside this church ⛪️ mass was being conducted. We quietly entered and watched from the back of the chapel and as female priest led the proceedings to a group of nuns. I don’t know what they were saying but the rhythmical murmur of the nuns repeating the prayers was a beautiful sound.

The spaces between the buildings are often more impressive that the buildings themselves in these beautiful old towns. Here a simple set of steps widened and elevated create a ‘front yard’ which is a public space - a set of mini squares. Just a lovely space to sit on the steps chat with the neighbours and watch people in the city walk past.

Granada moments.

Flamenco 💃🏾 rockstars busking.

Sunset over the Alhambra palace in Granada.

To take time to watch the sunset is a 2019 goal for sure.

What a sunset over the Alhambra in Granada this afternoon.
