New Calatrava's bridge in Valencia ... the controversy goes on

Hi, this is my first photo of a series taken yesterday at the new bridge raised in Valencia by the architect Santiago Calatrava. Again, it has been very controversial. Apart of the extra cost, people complain that the shape of the bridge resembles them the "ugly" tool ("jamonero") used in the kitchen to hold a Spanish ham ("jamón serrano") in order to cut it in slices in a safe way. In addition, the City of Arts and Sciences is getting very crowded because all the buildings are located very close among them. In any case, it seems that the controversy is always behind the work by a genius as Santiago Calatrava.

 

Without the intention of being a whiner, again my apologies for the long delay in reciprocating your comments.

 

Have a nice weekend!
