While not entirely, but somewhat unrelated, the works of Santiago Calatrava have always amazed me. The Spanish architect began designing when he was just a teenager. Born in 1952, in Valencia, Spain, Calatrava had a passion for the arts and architecture for the beginning. What I love about his work is that he creates something so organic with materials that are so opposite of that.

I feel like Calatrava's work relates to my own sculpture in that he is taking these manmade objects to create something so fluid, beautiful and natural.
