Very futuristic! Looks a bit like a bird's head!

I love this building! And this is a deceptively good photograph of it, since the violent contrast between the bright sunlight and the shade has been perfectly captured.

Thanks my friends!!!
I love it too, Stevie. You can walk around it and after every step it looks completely different.

wow almost perfect symmetry herr Volker, if it's not for the clouds ;) ha! great photo indeed, and the style of this building reminds me a lot of the style of the Getty Center in Los Angeles of Richard Meier, do you if this is a Richard Meiers project too?
sehr cool!

Thanks, Bere!!! I know, I should remove the clouds. But I was too lazy. ;-)

Santiago Calatrava is the architect of the auditorio.

oh danke herr Volker, then is not the same arquitect, just the same style, you know how stuff from the same era at the end all looks the same ;)... and NO glad you left the clouds! that way is an asymmetry courtesy of nature!

Hehe... It reminds me at the Opera House in Sydney. But also not the same architect. :-)
