Описание: As one of the biggest names in contemporary architecture, engineer-cum-architect Santiago Calatrava is internationally famous for the conception and masterful execution of structures akin to high art. Taking inspiration from nature, his work mimics the shapes and motions of organic entities, as can be witnessed in the Turning Torso skyscraper in Sweden, the Milwaukee Art Museum in Wisconsin, and the recently completed World Trade Center Transportation Hub in downtown Manhattan. Calatrava: Oculus New York is the authority on the already-iconic building, sure to be canonized as one of the most beautiful public buildings of the twenty first century.

Описание: The Spanish architect and engineer Santiago Calatrava has sought to revitalize the art of bridge building. All of his structures seek to go beyond mere function to become sculptural elements contributing to the quality of built environment. The present work, which follows Calatrava Bridges is a study authorized by the architect. By examining the nature of each project site and the often complex political realities attendant to building, it demonstrates how the architectural work of Santiago Calatrava has re-established the importance of urban infrastructure to urban design. Calatrava secured his reputation with Zurich's Stadelhofen Station (1982-1990). It is a reputation which has continued to grow with other innovative projects such as the BCE Galleria in Toronto (1987-1992); Lyon Airport Station (1989-1994); a project for a bio-shelter and the completoin of the Cathedral of St John the Divine (1991), New York; Tenerife Concert Hall, under construction; and the extension of the Milwaukee Art Museum. However, it was with his competition entry for the conversion of the Reichstag Building in Berlin (Joint 1st Prize, 1992) that gained the attention of the international community at large. The explicitly urban approach to any task is characteristic of Calatrava's work. Whether bus shelter, bridge or airport terminal, what underlies Calatrava's approach is a quest for a deeper understanding of the static forces at work, to whcih he gives unprecedented expression.
