Photographer's Note

The City of Arts and Sciences is an architectural, cultural and entertainment complex in the city of Valencia (Spain).

The complex was designed by Santiago Calatrava and Félix Candela, together with the engineers responsible for the structural design of the roofs of the L'Oceanografic Alberto Domingo and Carlos Lázaro. It was inaugurated on June 9, 1998 with the opening of El Hemisférico. The last major component of the City is the Ágora, located between the bridge of l'Assut de l'Or and l'Oceanogràfic.

The City of Arts and Sciences is located at the end of the old Turia riverbed, a channel that became a garden in the 1980s, after the river was diverted by the great Valencia flood in 1957. In 2007, it was one of the winners of the 12 Treasures of Spain contest.
