??? Have you ever been to Liége? I've been several times and grandly historical is not what comes to mind.

Yes, it does have a lot of history still. But my first sight of the city was the highrises along the river. This is often the first sight for many visitors, and highrises do not denote history. In fact, it is possible that this is the most "highrise" dominated river in inland Europe.

And whilst I'm on that, I never understand why some people think historical European cities should remain stuck in the past and never build anything new or modern or cutting edge. Just look at the success of Spanish cities. Far more historical than most in Europe, yet just as famous for the cutting edge modern architecture.

nice pictures, and I could'nt agree with you more. I believe that old and modern architecture go extremely well together.

Although he is repetitive, Calatrava's work never ceases to amaze me

interesting design... but it's not like the others..... WHat I can see of his work is that the space in open places is some kind of virtual.... it's not a "tangible" space.... That's because I thought that he can't be completely repetitive.... I see it like "Calatrava's modules" with a diffreent configuration.....he just design the Shell... just in a few times (turning torso) we can see other kind of spaces....

The station looks great, though as has already been said, the style is quite similar to other Calatravas buildings (a skeleton of white curved steel, basically), however I don't think it's adequate for a city with less than 200,000 inhabitants, given the cost of Calatrava's projects and the limited number of passangers that it will manage.

yes, from some elevated locations
in my opinion, the most impressive sight is during the night, driving valley down on the highway from airport of Liège (collector of highways from Brussels and Paris)

I think it looks awful, like it belongs back in the 1960's.
