Inhaltsangabe: Master of Form: Santiago Calatrava's exquisite fusion of architecture, art and engineering (Complete Works 1979-2007) Santiago Calatrava is not only one of the world's most prominent architects, but also an engineer and an artist. With recent projects such as the stadiums for the 2004 Olympic Games in Athens or the new railway station in Li?ge, Belgium, he has reached a level of undeniable notoriety in Europe and continues to move further ahead. The only architect ever to have his work exhibited at both the Museum of Modern Art and the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York, he is currently working on the main transportation hub for Ground Zero in Manhattan as well as the tallest building in the United States: the 160-story Chicago Spire Tower. Winner of the 2005 American Institute of Architects Gold Medal as well as numerous other prestigious awards, Calatrava is one of the greatest and most innovative architects alive. He collaborated extensively with Philip Jodidio in the preparation of this monograph that retraces his career thus far and places his architecture in the context of his art, where nature meets engineering. All of Calatrava's work, from his astonishing suspended swimming pool at Zurich's Federal Institute of Technology to his latest, startling designs, is featured in this lavishly illustrated volume. Santiago Calatrava created watercolor drawings specifically for the fold-out pages of this volume.
Inhaltsangabe: This book is a unique view of a creative endeavour that has set standards for the architects and designers of the future. * For his inspiration, Calatrava draws on organic, human and zoomorphic shapes such as ribs, bones, or insect eyes and has fascinated many with the lightness of his touch in transferring small format models in wood and metal into immense constructions. i.e.: The telecommunications tower in Barcelona and the Expo bridge in Seville to Bilbao airport * Satolas railway station in Lyon is one of the uncontested masterpieces of star architect Santiago Calatrava, and surely one of the master achievements of contemporary architecture anywhere.
