Abstract

IES Granada was born in 2005 with the intention of using the city of Granada and its surroundings as an open book for our students. Granada is a physical space, but it is also a multitude of other spaces –a social space, an imaginary space, a space shaped by time and history, a spaced loaded with a common heritage.
Since our very first semester, the course “Islamic Art and Architecture of Spain and its influence” has been the paradigm of the city as an open book. During these years, our students have learned to read new languages: Buildings, urban structures, artistic details born out of dreams, needs, will to power, or faith. They have learned them in the classrooms of our center, but very particularly in the spaces of Granada and old Al-Andalus. This field visit notebook will accompany our students as they read this open book. It is the fruit of a magnificent work of documentation by three of our professors, María Marcos Cobaleda, Guadalupe Romero and Ana Hernández Walta. It will not only help our students better understand the spaces they visit, but also inspire new perspectives, thoughts, and ideas.
