I took this particular image at the Valencia’s City Of Art And Sciences, while the light was mild and delicate. Surprisingly, this remarkable complex has been built in the former bed of the River Turia. It’s not only the Museum of Science you see on the photo, there are also other buildings, related to science and technology, such as the Planetarium; or to nature – like the Oceanographic park, and also to art – as the Opera house.
Valencia – what a playground. I had pretty high expectations for the so-called City of Arts and Sciences, but they were significantly exceeded. As a photographer with passion for modern architecture, you can’t wish for anything more. In my opinion, Santiago Calatrava has created an absolute masterpiece in his hometown Valencia.
