Reflections: Portuguese Cistern

Built in 1514, the Portuguese cistern in El Jadida, Morocco offers a simple environment to experiment with lighting. The underground space is constructed of five rows of five stone pillars. It measures  a perfect 34 meters by 34 meters. The water that covers the floor offers several variations and angles at unique captures.
