Photographer's Note

The Ciudad de las Artes y las Ciencias (City of Arts and Sciences) was recently built adjacent to the upstream end of the Jardines del Turía. It is a campus which provides a dramatic increase in the city's cultural infrastructure, with a planetarium and various museums. The location of the campus directly adjacent to the historical center provides the campus with a central location, while the complementarity of its architecture and its layout create a cohesive district. The modern and innovative character of the architecture makes it clearly distinct from the rest of the city, while creating a new style which is clearly Valencian, thanks to the designs by the native Calatrava. The connection between the older city and the Ciudad de las Artes y las Ciencias is strengthened by the new bridge which links them together, also built by Calatrava.
