With its street musicians and food trucks, the square has a quiet, clas atmosphere. Vast graffiti artworks dominate a wide, pedestrianised avenue of warehouses off it. The futuristic ( Museum of Tomorrow) on the waterside, is a visually stunning concrete bromeliad, but its interactive technical showings are probably not worth the hours of queuing.
