White sculptures
Project info

The flexible boundary between architecture and sculpture in Calatrava’s unique architectural language is a typical attribute of his work. His buildings in the Ciudad de las Artes y de las Ciencias (City of Arts and Sciences) appear like vivid corporeal objects, which contain filigree but strictly systematic structures. My intention with this image sequence is to carve out the dynamics of the stylistic vocabulary in his lively ensemble of buildings. I am fascinated by the overlapping of sculptural and architectural elements in Calatrava’s oeuvre, as they seem to complement each other and even merge to a harmonic unity. In particular with the effect of sunlight, the buildings appear like being arranged in a light-space installation.
