Un cortometraggio racconta l’architettura di Santiago Calatrava

New York-based filmmaker Alexandra Liveris talks about her profile of Spanish architect Santiago Calatrava, here shown as a special Nowness version of the film:

 


 

“Santiago Calatrava has designed two of the major projects at Ground Zero, a site of massive redevelopment that is changing the way we are interacting with Downtown New York. It became apparent to me that the importance of Calatrava’s designs is not yet fully absorbed into the collective consciousness of the city, but will come to define an important part of our environment and history.”

This film is an invitation to understand the work process of a rarified mind: an architect that creates beautiful and functional spaces with a monumental artistic vision.
