Sci Fi Architecture

I’ve been sharing photos from our recent vacation over on my photo blog, so if you follow that, this might be a bit of a repeat. However, purely as a geeky interest, I wanted to also share photos of an area of Valencia, Spain known as the City of Arts and Sciences.

The City of Arts and Sciences in Valencia is a unique complex devoted to scientific and cultural dissemination which is made up of five main elements: the Hemisfèric (IMAX cinema and digital projections), the Umbracle (a landscaped vantage point and car park), the Príncipe Felipe Science Museum (an innovative centre of interactive science), the Oceanográfico (the largest aquarium in Europe with over 500 marine species) and the Palau de les Arts Reina Sofía (which takes care of the operatic programme). The Ágora gives the complex a multifunctional space.

Also, the architecture looks like something out of Aliens, which is very cool!

Of course, the other cool, geeky, thing we found in Valencia was this bit of graffiti art. I couldn’t resist taking a photo of it.
