Home town of the famous architect Santiago Calatrava.
The location is of a ten year architectural development designed by Santiago. The land used to be the old river stream that ran through the City. They drained the water out and this is where the architecture is situated.
The area is made up of a Science Museum, Planetarium, Opera House and a Promenade. The Opera House has two symmetrical sheets of concrete that are structured away from the building itself giving a sense of a massive warrior helmet.
The Planetarium during the day looks like an insect as at night looks like a huge eye with the reflections of the water.
The Promenade has an oval shape metal structure that in time will have flowers and trees growing up and around it.
The Science Museum is very tall standing building that has an unusual shape to it like all the features of Santiago Calatrava Architecture.
