Beyond Bilbao, three contemporary cultural architecture projects in Northern Spain

This photo-essay pictures three contemporary cultural architecture projects in their urban context; Centro Botín in Santander, Centro Niemeyer in Avilés and Cidade da Cultura (Gaías) in Santiago de Compostela. North Spain has more cultural architecture than Bilbao's Guggenheim!

Photo's in this essay are from a visitors' perspective. Not the perspective of architects to show design details, or the perspective of photographers waiting for the perfect light or using Photoshop to make photos more attractive. WYSIWYG - what you see is what you get, given the weather conditions of the days the photo's were made.
