Photographer's Note

This shot has been taken at Isla de la Cartuja -- an almost-island in the Guadalquivir River at Seville. I found this modern building in the commercial zone of this district. Its design and modern architecture is fantastic full of creative architectural projects and realizations.

The island's name derives from the cloistered monastery (Cartuja) located on the site, the Monasterio de Santa María de las Cuevas, where Cristopher Columbus lived when planning the voyage to the west. Here was located the world's fair to celebrate the 500th anniversary of the first Columbian expeditions, the Expo '92.

This city district has been focused on urbanization plans for at least a decade. New residential areas and commercial zones have been developed in the neighborhood, and major plans, such as the skyscraper Cajasol Tower, presently being built. Source: Wikipedia
