Santiago Calatrava, Media Darling of the Moment

Now that the Libeskind moment is officially closing, let's get on with the dirty work of passing the genius baton to other architects involved in the WTC site plans. Newsday on Santiago Calatrava: "As he pads into his home gallery dressed in a sober suit, he has the demeanor not of a showman or a visionary or a poet -- all words that have been used to describe him -- but of an affluent Mediterranean intellectual."

We've always loved Calatrava. We love his vision. We love his buildings. And we hereby set the over/under for his media immolation at 194 days.
