Memo to The Banks Working Group
In the two or three hours I had to see Valencia, I decided to walk through the beautiful Turia Gardens, which was full of people walking, running, biking, children playing in playgrounds... it goes on and on through the whole city. Then I came across this other "city" -- an extraordinary new City of Arts and Sciences at one end of the park, designed by Salvatore Calatrava.
It includes an opera house, Imax cinema, planetarium, science museum and an open-air oceanographic park. I've taken a few photos, but you can also visit Web sites; and here's the official one.
Memo to Banks Working Group: How about some creative thinking like this??
