Santiago Calatrava is a world-renowned architect, structural engineer, sculptor and artist. From the 2004 Olympic Sports Complex in Athens to the World Trade Center Transportation Hub in Manhattan, he demonstrates remarkable aesthetic and technical prowess with a simultaneous sensitivity to both the appearance and anatomy of a structure.
With influences ranging from NASA space design to da Vinci's studies of nature, Calatrava's creations are at once aerodynamic and organic in their associations. Natural forms and human movement form the basis of some of his projects, with a particular interest in the meeting point of balance and dynamism.
This updated monograph collects detailed submissions, photography and the original watercolor sketches that distinguish Calatrava as a unique creative master. It includes all of Calatrava's original contributions, as well as new projects such as the Mediopadana Station in Reggio Emilia, Italy, the Museum of Tomorrow in Rio de Janeiro and recent works such as the UAE Pavilion at Expo 2020 in Dubai.
