Santiago Calatrava: The Architect's Studio
Henry Art Gallery
On view: July 14, 2004 - November 21, 2004
The exhibition Santiago Calatrava: The Architect's Studio affords a first-hand view of Calatrava's renowned and groundbreaking designs, his creative working process, as well as an experiential perspective on his built projects.
Visitors navigate working materials, original sketchbooks, and
works in-progress to experience the span of Calatrava's career.
Videos create the sense of moving in and through his built works
and across bridges.
The Architect's Studio also explores Calatrava's dynamic process in the milieu of the architect's studio, including the way its floor is strewn with sketches of figures in motion and charging bulls.
The Santiago Calatrava: The Architect's Studio exhibition
catalog is presented as a sketchbook, of more than 50 color
sketches, with an enclosed CD-Rom that documents 30 projects,
including sculptures and furniture, with color photos, complete
texts, and five QuickTime videos.
The many projects presented range from Calatrava's early 1980s buildings, the Stadelhofen Station in Zürich, Ernstings Warehouse in Coesfeld-Lette and the Lyon - Satolas TGV Station in Lyon, to the latest projects, the Milwaukee Art Museum, Tenerife Concert Hall, the Athens 2004 Olympic Sports Complex, City of Arts and Sciences in Valencia, the new Path Terminal at the World Trade Center in New York, "Turning Torso" in Malmø, the tallest apartment building in Europe, and several extraordinary bridges including the latest design for the Light Rail Train Bridge in Jerusalem.
The exhibition is on view July 17 through November 21, 2004
