Santiago Calatrava offers architectural vision of 21st Century

A master of conceptual art and design, Santiago Calatrava is likely to be remembered as the first great architect of the 21st Century. Nothing captivates the mind and inspires the soul like the elegant buildings designed by Calatrava.

Here are some of the exquisite structures created by Santiago Calatrava:

2. Wondrous 21st Century Architecture from Pelli, Clarke, Pelli

Pelli Clarke Pelli has been a leader in environmentally sustainable design for over a decade. PCP Arch designs included sustainable strategies even before the U.S. Green Building Council established its Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) program. PCP designed the country’s first residential tower to achieve LEED Platinum, the program’s highest rating. Their vision of sustainability extends beyond the technical concerns of reducing a building’s energy consumption; they believe that to be truly sustainable, a building's design must address the economic and cultural factors that make a project successful long into the future.

3. Cutting edge new architecture by Daniel Libeskind

New meets old: Royal Ontario Museum (ROM) in Toronto, Canada

Love them or hate them, nobody can say that Daniel Libeskind's buildings lack imagination and daring. Though it's been said that some of Daniel's creations are better for viewing than for living or working (hello ROM...) in, Libeskind's output pushes the boundaries of architectural design to the point where technology and materials allow advances in building construction.

The fact that the Daniel Libeskind Studio is also developing and implementing sustainable design policies is like cream cheese icing on a delicious pineapple carrot cake, just keeps getting better.
