Spanish visionary Santiago Calatrava is renowned around the world as an architect, structural engineer, sculptor and artist. Famed for bridges as much as buildings, he has made his name with neofuturistic structures that combine deft engineering solutions with dramatic visual impact.
This compact introduction explores Calatrava's unique aesthetic with key projects from his career, from early breakthroughs to his most recent work. Through buildings of culture, science, faith, and across his many famous bridges, we explore his integration or organic forms and human movements, and a uniquely fluid futurism, soaring towards tomorrow.
