emilio ambasz created Casa de Retiro Espiritual in collaboration with skira publishers and a dedicated exhibition at MOMA, new york.
the house is built on an outcropping 40 km north of seville and commands an amazing view over the spanish landscape while itself an anachronism in context. the daytime spirit of contemplation at the juncture of almost dimension-less planes is replaced at night by organic pools of light floating in the darkness.
