Calatrava. Complete Works 1979-Today by Philip Jodidio Pdf
L'architettura di Santiago Calatrava tra equilibrio e movimento Santiago Calatrava è un rinomato architetto, ingegnere strutturale, scultore e artista. Le sue opere, dal complesso olimpico di Atene 2004 al World Trade Center Transportation Hub di Manhattan, rivelano un'estetica unica e una notevole capacità ingegneristica, insieme a una grande sensibilità sia per l'aspetto che per l'anatomia di una struttura. Recependo influenze di ogni tipo, dal design spaziale della NASA agli studi sulla natura di Leonardo da Vinci, Calatrava crea strutture al tempo stesso aerodinamiche e organiche. Ispirandosi a forme naturali e a movimenti umani, i suoi progetti tendono verso un punto di incontro tra equilibrio e dinamicità. Questa monografia aggiornata riunisce schede dettagliate, fotografie e gli originali schizzi ad acquerello che hanno fatto di Calatrava un maestro unico. Il volume comprende tutte le collaborazioni originali dell'architetto, nonché nuovi progetti come la Stazione di Reggio Emilia Mediopadana o il Museo del Domani di Rio de Janeiro e opere in corso come il Padiglione degli Emirati Arabi Uniti per l'Expo 2020 di Dubai.

Gaudí's complete works: The inspiring, visionary buildings by the "Dante of architecture" Anyone who visits Barcelona today will come across the works of Antoni Gaudí--the architect who has attracted art-lovers from all over the world to Spain. It was here, in the capital of Catalonia, that the famous master of architecture produced nearly all of his works, including villas for the well-to-do bourgeoisie, the expansive Güell Park (which today is open to the public), and the famous church designed in honour of the Holy Family--a project which was begun over 100 years ago and has yet to be completed. Antoni Gaudí's life was full of contradictions. As a young man he joined the Catalonian nationalist movement and was critical of the church; toward the end of his life he devoted himself completely to the construction of one single church. As a young man Gaudí had a liking for the glamour of social life and the looks of a dandy; in old age, on the other hand, he lived a spartan life. Gaudí never married and devoted his life entirely to his art: architecture. His works have been acclaimed as "soothing oases in a desert of functional buildings," as "precious gems in the uniform grey of rows of houses," and the master himself was acclaimed as the "Dante of architecture". This book provides a sweeping study of his entire career, presenting his complete works via texts and illustrations.
