Following a catastrophic flood in 1957, the city of Valencia made plans to divert the Turia River to avoid this happening again. By 1969 the riverbed was completely dry leaving 5 miles of newly exposed land for redevelopment. The result is a spectacular urban green space for visitors and locals to enjoy. The newly built City of Arts and Sciences complex is probably the most fascinating area. A wonder of modern architecture designed by Valencian architect Santiago Calatrava, this cultural complex has something for everyone. On this particular evening, nightfall brought with it a glorious multi coloured sky, it was worth the wait! I added a little texture to The Architecture of Modern Valencia Spain to complete the image.
