INTRODUCTION

With a surface area of 350,000m2, the City of Arts and Sciences is a major recreational and cultural centre. Its architecture and the capacity to teach in a fun way will surprise the visitor. It’s one of the main cultural centres in Valencia and the project was developed by two Spanish architects of great international prestige: Santiago Calatrava (L’Umbracle) and Félix Candela, author of the singular roofs of the main buildings of the Oceanogràfic. Their different elements were inaugurated between 1998 and 2009.
