Santiago Calatrava

Santiago Calatrava is a Spanish architect.

Born: July 28th[?] 1951, Valencia, Spain

Calatrava's unique and highly influential style combines a striking visual artistic style with a solid knowledge of engineering. Often inspired by natural forms such as the cantilevered skeletons of dinosaurs, his works have elevated the design of such mundane civil engineering projects such as bridges to new heights.

Notable Works:

Calatrava has also submitted designs for a number of notable projects which were eventually awarded to other designs, including the Reichstag in Berlin and the East London River Crossing[?]. This last in particular was a very elegant and bold design which was considered by most to be a far more worthy design to that actually built.
