Museo de las Ciencias Príncipe Felipe

Azul Platino granite transforms the interior of the Museo de las Ciencias Príncipe Felipe, part of the Ciudad de las Artes y las Ciencias de Valencia, into a space with exceptional personality.

Its external design leaves no-one unmoved: at first glance one would describe it as a dinosaur skeleton exposed for centuries to the Mediterranean sun. Museo de las Ciencias Príncipe Felipe, which forms part of the architectural complex of the Ciudad de las Artes y las Ciencias de Valencia, draws our attention with its interior and exterior originality. This project by Santiago Calatrava and Félix Candela stands out for a cutting-edge design that has ensured a spectacular look for both the exterior and the interior, where the floors covered in Azul Platino granite by Levantina take centre stage.
Like a sheet of water against a backdrop of small bluish pebbles, the granite floor extends throughout the futuristic space. Thanks to its polished finish, the surface reflects the light flooding in through the vast windows that shape the architectural “bones”: it seems not to come to an end. Azul Platino granite provides its excellent resilience, an indispensable quality in a public space where foot traffic is incessant. The minimalism that permeates the space finds its best ally in this homogeneous material with the power to inspire.
