Santiago Calatrava: The Athens Olympicsby Alexander Tzonis
Santiago Calatrava established his reputation as the preeminent engineer of our time with a stunning series of bridges designed for cities around the globe. Renowned for being a universal designer, devoting equal time to architecture, engineering, and sculpture, Calatrava has been a singular force in reviving an excitement for construction technology and ambitious architecture projects. This authoritative monograph on Calatrava's designs for the 2004 Olympic Games in Athens is a splendidly illustrated presentation of the architect's celebrated stadium as well as the various plazas and ceremonial spaces created for the event.
