Structural Engineering
Sculpture and Art
Integrated Design
Train/Railway Stations



Santiago Calatrava Valls studied architecture at the Escuela Tecnica Superios de Arquitecture de Valencia in 1969 and later studied civil engineering in 1975. Calatrava began his first architecture and engineering practice in Zurich, Switzerland in 1981. All of his work is readily characterized by its focus on architecture, engineering, and sculpture. Much of his career is dedicated to bridges and train stations, but their forms depict a language that is derived from natural forms and the human body. With strong gestures of form and unorthodox structural techniques, Calatrava’s style has been called by many as linking the seperation between structural engineering and architecture.

The practice first began by designing churches and residential homes throughout the Madison, Wisconsin area. The firm was first recognized by the Architectural Forum magazine in 1936 for their design of the Erickson Home for the Madison Small Homes Bureau. Since then they have made a major shift from churches and homes to innovative facilities, often partnering with research organizations, universities, and healthcare institutions. Today, they continue to be innovators of design with an emphasis on the philosophy of “People inspiring architecture”, and strong attention to detail.
