Valencia Buildings by Santiago Calatrava

City of Arts and Sciences

These amazing buildings are part of Valencia’s City of Arts and Sciences, designed by the architects Santiago Calatrava and Félix Candela. Situated on the former riverbed of the river Turia, which was drained and rerouted after a catastrophic flood in 1957.

Building Construction

The building of these amazing, skeleton-like buildings on the sunken linear park started in 1996, with the final one opening in 2005.
