Santiago Calatrava: Milwaukee Art Museum, Quadracci Pavilion
Santiago Calatrava
Milwaukee Art Museum, Quadracci Pavilion
Hardcover      ISBN: 0847827011

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, Orl ans, 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 Li ge; the Sondica Airport in Bilbao; the Tenerife Concert Hall in the Spanish Canary Islands; and the Valencia Science Museum, Planetarium, and Opera House.
