I can't believe I'm the first to comment, Peter!

This is a great photo and you have captured the lovely different light colours on the windows and the "swirl" of this amazing building so beautifully. Well done!! It is very expressive!

I have sent a copy to my son, who is a Design lecturer in the Architecture Faculty at Cape Town University - he will be very interested in your lovely photo!

Warm greetings, Hazel

warst du auch im Gebäude? - ist sicher interessant!

LG. Ellen

Wow, Santiago Calatrava is very busy, he seems to be everywhere. His main office is in Zurich, where he studied engineering. Fantastic photo, Peter!

Best wishes, May
