“Designed by the Swiss-Spanish architect Santiago Calatrava for the Dubai Expo. At the centre of the structure there is a sphere-shaped void that serves as an auditorium with a capacity of 200. Its continuum form is a symbol of resilience and of a boundless future embracing a dialogue among different cultures.”

“The unexpected beauty of the elusive nature manifesting the most beautiful Milky Way I have seen – surrounded by amazing architectural symmetry. I discovered this astonishing view looking up while I walked around the mall … it was breath-taking … and so I stayed there for a long time with my tripod and ND filter to capture every detail in my long-exposure shot.”
