We are inside the Agora, the latest building built by Santiago Calatrava at Valencia.
I have selected this panorama only because the opportunity to have a look inside it. The building had been opened only in order to celebrate the Valencia Open500 matches. Now, at Christmas time and I think for a few days is open to everybody.
The building is more impressive indoors that outdoors (of blue "trencadís") and although keeping the Calatrava style, offers a softer aspect.

En en interior del Agora [spanish]

Nos encontramos en el interior del Agora, el último edificio construido por Santiago Calatrava en Valencia.
He seleccionado este panorama porque presentaba la oportunidad de echar una mirada a su interior, el edificio había sido abierto únicamente para celebrar el Valencia Open500 de tenis.
Ahora por Navidad, y supongo por pocos días está abierto al público ofreciendo la posibilidad del patinar sobre hielo. Como su nombre indica se concibió como futuro lugar de actividades públicas, no sabemos si este es al fin el comienzo.
El edificio es más impresionante por el interior que por el exterior (de 'trencadís' azul), y aunque mantiene el 'estilo Calatrava' tiene unas líneas mas suaves, quizás una evolución de su autor.
