R5- The city of Arts and Sciences

The first construction that I was excited to visit when I came to Valencia was The city of sciences and arts. When we type valencia in google for example, it’s the fisrt monument that we can see. And when I visited it, I understood why it’s such an iconic contruction here in Valencia.

But my question is, How the architect Santiago Calatrava and Félix Candela the architects were able to desing such a big, orinial and a little bit futuristic contruction?

We all agree that the shape of it is original and reminds of of many things; personally it reminds me of a spaceship or a submarine.

I think my question about the steps of the desing and the conception of this construction will stay open for a little moment until I find my answers when I will evolve even more in the field of architecture!
