Coolest thing I’ve seen in a while

This is amazing.

Attention to lighting design and the surrounding landscape are two things I think a great architect should consider when designing a building. Appropriate lighting can enhance the architect’s design while a cohesive relationship with the surroundings can add or detract from the architect’s intent for the structure.

The City of Arts and Sciences in Valencia, Spain, so my surprise, achieves both. I guess I should try to have a more optimistic outlook on modern architecture…

This is definitely going on my list of places to visit post-graduation.
