After a catastrophic flood in 1957, the city of Valencia decided to divert the Turia River to ensure that this disaster never happened again. By 1969 the riverbed was dry, leaving 5 miles of new land for redevelopment. The result is a fantastic 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 blended texture with my original photograph Futuristic Architecture of Modern Valencia Spain to complete the futuristic feel of the image.
