Santiago Calatrava

Spanish designer (1951 - )

Santiago Calatrava Valls (born on July 28th, 1951 in Valencia) is a Spanish architect, sculptor and structural engineer whose main offices are in Zurich, Switzerland. Now one of the world’s elite designers, it has offices in Zurich, Paris, Valencia and New York.
At the beginning of his career, Calatrava devoted himself largely to bridges and train stations, with a design that elevated the status of civil engineering projects to new heights. His “Montjuic” communications tower in Barcelona, Spain (1991) at the heart of the 1992 Olympic site, as well as the Allen Lambert Gallery in Toronto, Canada (1992), were important works and turning points in his career. The Quadracci Pavilion (2001) of the Milwaukee Museum of Art was his first building in the United States. Calatrava’s entry into skyscraper design begins with an innovative 54-floor torsion tower called Turning Torso (2005) located in Malmö, Sweden.
Calatrava has designed a futuristic train station, the World Trade Center Transportation Hub at the World Trade Center in New York City, which is under reconstruction. The Calatrava style was announced as reducing the division between structural engineering and architecture.
Calatrava is also a prolific sculptor and painter, arguing that the practice of architecture combines all arts into one.
