“Ornament of the World” depicted in video on Moorish Spain

A medieval German traveler once described Granada, in Moorish Spain, as the “Ornament of the World.” A video posted on the Moroccan Design website showcases the beauty and enlightment of the region.

The 100-minute video covers medieval Arabic/Islamic society in Europe, specifically Southern Spain, including "an explanation of the geometric proportions used in the construction of the Alhambra, which is based on proportional rectangles." The video concentrates on Morocco and Spain.
