“Yusur-Bridges. Landscape and architecture in Morocco and Spain” explores the landscape and architecture of these two countries through an exhibition display that travels through the streets of cities and medinas, showcasing highly significant pieces of architecture that have considerably modified the landscape of both shores of the Mediterranean.

Approaching the city and the land at different scales, the research compiles images that are grouped into six categories: large scale urban; neighbourhood landscapes; interior landscapes; coastal landscapes; communication landscapes and urban landscapes. The photographs are accompanied by a selection of texts referring to different notions of landscape and ways of relating to the built environment.

The results of this research were presented at a travelling exhibition which began at the Sala de la Arquería in Nuevos Ministerios, Madrid, and continued on to Malaga, Alicante, Rabat and other locations. The catalogue includes texts and comparative images of the landscapes and architecture.
