a must for architect

They sure spent a hell of money to make Valencia a highlight of architecture. And the city got about bankrupt thanks to that. Still, it is a stunning view.

Was such a surprise as not normally excited by modern architecture preferring older buildings. It was an area we knew nothing about and enjoyed the views and exploring the area.

Visiting the "Calatrava isle" in 10-2015 we encoutered disappointment. Lack of maintenance coused decay. To see how the city-administration succeeds many many child groups to come to the surroundings gives hope.

Very pretty to look at without a doubt, BUT, it is important to know the history of over inflated costs, repairs to the music hall because all of the cladding fell off and the constant flooding. Valencia has incurred a huge debt as a result of this "genio". Great for car adverts but not really a lot else

The only thing better than saying the name "Santiago Calatrava" is seeing his stunning architecture. I fell in love with his designs first in Valencia and then visit them every time I visit Spain.

Actually, the name of this bridge is Puente de la Exposicion and it was constructed in early nineties as one of the first Calatrava’s works. This elegant construction is amazing in its simplicity. Do not mixed it with works in the City of Arts and Sciences.
