Santiago Calatrava: 'I Deeply Consider Architecture an Art'

New, 3 comments

ArchDaily recently sat down for a chat with Santiago Calatrava, the architect behind the World Trade Center Transportation Hub (and its controversial Oculus) for a chat about his career, his work, and the challenges of running his own architecture firm. The interview, which took place at the architect's home in New York City, provided some choice quotes:

"I deeply consider architecture as an art—the most abstract of all of them.…It's probably the most difficult to reach in terms of preparations to deliver something coherent.""I like working for public companies. It's public, it means it belongs to everyone, and I like that."Check out more in the video below.
