City of Arts & Oceanographic Sciences - Santiago Calatrava

A conscious nod to architect Felix Candela, this 2005 project is set to be "the newest jewel in Valencia's crown." Not only that, it's a superbly expressive use of thin shell concrete hypars.

I like the design a lot, even if it is a bit 'opera house'. That rock pool area will look old very quickly though. It is a shame they did not do more with the landscaping.
