Santiago Calatrava is among the most important and influential architects of our times. His candid architecture is polarizing yet unmistakable. The trademark of the Spanish architect are sculptural bridge designs that gained international acclaim as a symbiosis of elegant shape vocabulary and engineering masterstrokes and that shape the cityscapes in locations such as Jerusalem, Venice, Dallas, and Buenos Aires. The book is a special homage to his work: Santiago Calatrava in person talks about the visions on artistic-architectural philosophies behind his unparalleled bridge designs. He also contributes many descriptions of implemented and unimplemented works, which, together with first drafts, water color paintings, as well as high-quality photographs and renderings document the selected projects.
