Description

Santiago Calatrava is renowned around the world as an architect, structural engineer, sculptor, and artist. From the Athens 2004 Olympic sports complex to the World Trade Center Transportation Hub in Manhattan, he exhibits a remarkable aesthetic and engineering prowess with a simultaneous sensitivity for both the appearance and the anatomy of a structure.
With influences ranging from NASA space design to da Vinci’s nature studies, Calatrava’s creations are at once aerodynamic and organic in their associations. Natural forms and human movements inform a number of his projects, with a particular interest in the meeting point of equilibrium and dynamism.
This updated monograph includes all of Calatrava’s original collaborative input, as well as a number of new projects including the Peace Bridge in Calgary, Canada; the Conference and Exhibition Center in Oviedo, Spain; and the Mediopadana Station in Reggio Emilia, Italy.
