Santiago Calatrava’s exhibition, held at the National Gallery from March 21 to June 18, 2001, offered a panorama of ideas and images from the work of this universal artist who experiments and expresses himself in many different ways.
Calatrava’s architectural projects grew out of experimentation with sculptural volume and evolving ideas and solutions elaborated in his sculptures. The reciprocity between architecture and sculpture, art and engineering, is what makes this imposing production a cohesive whole.
Movement, which Calatrava introduced into his architecture, became the key characteristic of his work. Each project is linked to a poetic idea that has the power to awaken the collective imagination.
