During my recent trip to Valencia, Spain, I was overwhelmed by the fantastic architecture created by Santiago Calatrava. After the great flood in 1957, the river through Valencia was diverted and the riverbed turned into a miles long green way. The three main buildings fronted by pools of water were:
The Principe Felipe Science Museum
The ‘Hemesferic’ Planetarium
The Reina Sofia Arts Palace
It is like you are transported into the future. Imagine what the ancient Phoenicians would think if they saw these buildings when they first visited Spain thousands of years ago.
