Valencia, el Hemisferio de S. Calatrava la noche con reflejos

Selected for Google Maps and Google Earth

Ciudad de las artes y las ciencias is a complex of modern buildings designed and built by the architect Santago Calatrava, near Saler, a totaly modern area of Valencia. It consists of the Queen Sofia Museum, the hemisphere (a half-eye construction), the Museum of Prince Philip, the Oceanographic center (perhaps the largest in Europe), housed in 6 - 7 different buildings and L 'Umbracle, one construction, wich its corresponding exists in the Olympic center of Athens , work of the same architect. This complex is surrounded by pools and gardens, so it offers specially at night magnificent reflections. It is a minimalistic modern art architecture, and comes as a natural continuation of the great Spanish artists and architects of the last century.

Thanks for the visit and comments Christos. Browsing your pages again I spotted this one. It makes me sorry that I never visited at night when I was in the city. Superb balance that you've achieved in the composition by using the reflection. The picture also reveals the architect's intention with the pool completing the bottom of the "eye". Greetings from the UK, Matthew
