2018 / Architecture
The flexible boundary between architecture and sculpture in Calatrava’s unique architectural language is a typical attribute of his work. His buildings in the City of Arts and Sciences appear like vivid corporeal objects, which contain filigree but strictly systematic structures. My intention with this image sequence is to carve out the dynamics of the stylistic vocabulary in his lively ensemble of buildings. I am fascinated by the overlapping of sculptural and architectural elements in Calatrava’s oeuvre, as they seem to complement each other and even merge to a harmonic unity.
