Spanish-born architect Santiago Calatrava has achieved considerable international acclaim in recent years with his breathtaking feats of engineering in the service of elegant and humanistic modern forms. While his most recent success was the much-lauded (and much-televised) stadium, velodrome, and other structures of the Athens Olympics, Calatrava first established his reputation as the preeminent engineer of our time with a stunning series of bridges designed for cities around the globe―Barcelona, Bilbao, Buenos Aires, Orléans, Seville, Venice, and Jerusalem. Recent years have witnessed the introduction of Calatrava’s elegant forms to the American cityscape with designs for an innovative apartment tower and the much-anticipated World Trade Center Transportation Hub, both planned for lower Manhattan. But before these designs were unveiled, Calatrava completed the Quadracci Pavilion at the Milwaukee Art Museum, which Time named the best new design project of 2001. This beautifully illustrated monograph is a detailed exploration of a celebrated American architectural masterpiece.Calatrava’s spectacular cultural and civic projects have secured his place in the pantheon of world-class twenty-first-century architects. In addition to the Milwaukee Art Museum, he’s celebrated for train stations in Zurich, Lyons, Lisbon, and Liège; the Sondica Airport in Bilbao; the Tenerife Concert Hall in the Spanish Canary Islands; and the Valencia Science Museum, Planetarium, and Opera House.

I was struck in awe by the Milwaukee Art Museum as I was wallking towards it on Wisconsin Avenue. I had never been met with such a magnificent structure before in my life. There are so many angles you can admire it from, and each angle affords you a totally different perspective. The first time I saw it, it reminded me of a whale's tail as it is diving into the ocean. From another angle, it's a majestic ship sailing in Lake Michigan. This book is a great collection of pictures of the museum structure. I bought it as a souvenir of my visit there. The photographs don't do it justice 100%, but it's a wonderful reminder of the infinite possibilities of engineering and art. It's a perfect coffee table book gift for artists and non-artists alike.

This cocktail table quality book is a must for anyone who has visted the Milwaukee Art Museum. It presents a stunning array of dramatic photographs of the Calatrava addition. It is a must for anyone interested in architecture and the Amazon price makes it a reasonble investment. A perfect Christmas gift!

First off this book is an absolutely great documentation of this buildings, it has over 100 full color prints that fill entire pages. Every detail, plan, and section is also included. I bought this book for a project that I am doing for this semester and wow am I glad I did.

So if you are a student that needs plans/sections/elevations/details this is the only book that I have found that has good solid representations of each. Otherwise if you are a fan of the buildings or love the work of Calatrava this would be an excellent addition to a collection.

Absolutely beautiful book.
