"This is the first time that I have made the commitment to give a series of talks with the specific intention of communicating my experience. The things I am saying, I am saying for the next generation-people who will set and invent other styles and who will find their own way, just as I have integrated the works of those who have been working before me."-from Santiago Calatrava: Conversations with StudentsWith these words, Santiago Calatrava launched a recent series of lectures at MIT filled with insight, anecdote, and hard information about the practice of design. As the most important figure at the intersection of architecture and engineering, Calatrava reflects on his person path and ties it to his design work. Includes original sketches by Calatrava.

The Spanish architect and engineer Santiago Calatrava has revitalized not only the art of bridge building. All of his structures go beyond more function to become sculptural elements contributing to the quality of built environment. The present work, which follows Calatrava Bridges is a definitive 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 reestablished 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 completion of the Cathedral of St. John the Divine (1991), New York; Tenerife Concert Hall, under construction; and the current extension of the Milwaukee Art Museum. But 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 which he gives unprecedented expression. This constant experimentation and inquiry has led to solutions that are inventive and undisputedly elegant.

Spanish-born architect Santiago Calatrava has achieved considerable international acclaim in recent years with his breathtaking feats of engineering in the service of elegant and humanistic modern forms. While his most recent success was the much-lauded (and much-televised) stadium, velodrome, and other structures of the Athens Olympics, Calatrava first established his reputation as the preeminent engineer of our time with a stunning series of bridges designed for cities around the globe―Barcelona, Bilbao, Buenos Aires, Orléans, Seville, Venice, and Jerusalem. Recent years have witnessed the introduction of Calatrava’s elegant forms to the American cityscape with designs for an innovative apartment tower and the much-anticipated World Trade Center Transportation Hub, both planned for lower Manhattan. But before these designs were unveiled, Calatrava completed the Quadracci Pavilion at the Milwaukee Art Museum, which Time named the best new design project of 2001. This beautifully illustrated monograph is a detailed exploration of a celebrated American architectural masterpiece. Calatrava’s spectacular cultural and civic projects have secured his place in the pantheon of world-class twenty-first-century architects. In addition to the Milwaukee Art Museum, he’s celebrated for train stations in Zurich, Lyons, Lisbon, and Liège; the Sondica Airport in Bilbao; the Tenerife Concert Hall in the Spanish Canary Islands; and the Valencia Science Museum, Planetarium, and Opera House.

Over the last 20 years, Santiago Calatrava has made literally thousands of drawings and paintings and more than a hundred sculptures. Many of his drawings portray the human body - often in motion - alone, or in groups, or in an architectural context. Others show preliminary ideas, subsequently transformed into sculptures and which go on to provide the inspiration for his bridges, railway stations, airports and museums. A drawing is always the starting point for an entire laboratory of ideas. This book contains a selection of over 200 drawings, water colours and depictions of sculptures, chosen by the architect and the author because they are particularly well-suited to showing how Calatrava's creative ideas ripen and develop, from the initial drawings, to the sculptures, finally attaining completion in the realised buildings. At the same time, it examines the interfaces between the fine arts, engineering and architecture.

Santiago Calatrava. With more than ten years having passed since the 'case' of Calatrava was introduced into the international debate, it remains as relevant as ever to ask the same questions posed back then regarding an artistic personality and oeuvre still capable of provoking such heated and contradictory reactions from critics, the general public, and contemporary architectural culture alike. The extremism of the positions assumed by those faced with Calatrava's work compels us inevitably to investigate a phenomenon that intersects with the redefinition of the relationship between art and technology, or more specifically, between architecture and engineering, not to mention the crisis of the professions and their social credibility.
