8.366 Λέξεις Για Τον Σαντιάγκο Καλατράβα

Από τον New Yorker, ένα συναρπαστικό άρθρο. Όχι, πουθενά δεν αναφέρεται στο ΟΑΚΑ -είναι, προφανώς, από τα παραπεταμένα του.

Calatrava has been trained both in architecture and in engineering, but he thinks of himself as an artist, and it is as such that he has been embraced by his most enthusiastic champions. Three years ago, the Metropolitan Museum presented a show of Calatrava’s sculpture and architectural models; it was the largest exhibition the Met had ever devoted to a living architect. The show’s curator, Gary Tinterow, says of Calatrava, “When he approaches a project, he begins to think about it in terms of form. Then he refines the form, as he adapts it to the function at hand.” Joseph Seymour, the executive director of the Port Authority at the time Calatrava was selected for the PATH-station project, has said, “He’s the da Vinci of our time.”
