"Because of the shortcoming of visual and non-visual technologies, it is necessary to return to the Panopticon in order to engage any conversation of vision and control. It is the contention of this thesis that the sinister interpretations of the architectural community fall short of the authors intentions and that it is possible to consider vision as being used simultaneously by different agencies. This simultaneous vision can create visual encounters that lead to unforeseen hybridizations, turning Granada into a laboratory of hybrid cultures, tourist and citizen, nomadic and sedentary."
