Hi everyone,

I'm not sure if someone posted this before but I realised where they might have acquired some architectural inspiration for the cinematic ending of AC Revelations.

I just realised now it's actually from the same architect, Santiago Calavatra. The building from Valencia interestingly has a planetarium and his meant to resemble an eye. It's referred sometimes as "the eye of knowledge".

Another thing I just realised, but I guess this is looking too much in to it now:

Oh wow nice catch there, I never realized that before. Honestly I didn't even pay attention to the architecture :P

Thank you for sharing, that's fascinating. Just coincidence that they chose a building that resembled an eye? Maybe not... :confused::o

Probably just to create speculation, but I don't think there's a real meaning behind it.
