ciudad de las artes y las ciencias, or city of arts and sciences, velencia spain, (1996). designer: santiago calatrava, born velencia, spain (1951)

the entry of the world cup finalist county’s outstanding design (see dutch entry, from post dated 2010/07/11).unfortunately, pictomat has never been to valencia and pictomat’s general policy  is to not show anything that this site is not intimately connected to. however, sanitago calatrava, is not a name unknown to this site, and pictomat has visited a bridge (he is noted for designing many bridges) in bilbao, spain and a wonderful just completed office building in nyc. should spain win you may just see another of his wild structures. a bridge perhaps. good luck to both teams in the world cup finals.
