Photographer's Note

Museu de les Ci鋝cies Pr璯cipe Felipe, Valencia, Spain.

The City of Arts and Sciences is an ensemble of five areas in the dry river bed of the now diverted River Turia in Valencia, Spain. Designed by Valencian architect Santiago Calatrava and started in July 1996, it is an impressive example of modern architecture. The "city" is made up of the following, usually known by their Valencian names: El Palau de les Arts Reina Sof燰 Opera house and performing arts centre; L'Hemisf鋨ic Imax Cinema, Planetarium and Laserium; L'Umbracle Walkway / Garden; El Museu de les Ci鋝cies Pr璯cipe Felipe Science museum; L'Oceanogr趒ic Open-air oceanographic park. Surrounded by attractive streams and pools of water, it and the surrounding areas of the "city" are typically used as a relaxing place to walk day or night, with an open air bar outside El Museu de les Ci鋝cies Pr璯cipe Felipe during the evening.
