The City of Arts and Sciences Valencia, By David Keegan Garden Design
Pictures below are from a recent visit i made to Valencia. Prior to visiting i had never heard of The City of Arts and Science never mind its architectural magnificence. Built on a dry riverbed it truly displays an aura of other-worldliness. it is as if one had entered the stage set of a sci-fi movie or indeed stepped into some future place and time. The intense and crystal clear Mediterranean sky adds to the drama and effects as the sun sparkles shines and reflects in the water and on various facets of the buildings. What is truly wonderful is the the changing perspective as one walks around the various building some of which come to reflect different sea creatures from shark to dolphin to to insect. This is one of the most inspiring examples of contemporary in and urban context that i have thus far witnessed. Not to be missed if you happen to be in Valencia. My only reservation i did not visit the Oceanographic Park as i do not agree with Dolphins being used for human entertainment. Still the overall feeling of the area in general, is this place simply takes your breath away.
I sincerely hope you enjoy the pictures and please feel free to comment or ask questions.
