Prague Hosts Exhibit of Spanish Architect Calatrava’s Lesser-Known Art

PRAGUE – The Prague City Gallery will host starting Thursday an exhibit on the sculptures and paintings of renowned Spanish architect Santiago Calatrava.

The exhibit titled “Santiago Calatrava: Art and Architecture,” which runs until Sept. 16, will include 40 mockups, 20 paintings, 20 giant ceramic pieces, eight sculptures and many sketches.

Calatrava, 66, arrived in the Czech Republic’s capital to attend the inauguration of the display, telling EFE that he wants visitors to the exhibit to ask themselves “how sculpture can affect architecture.”

The Spanish architect added that the display gives him the opportunity to rediscover work he had completed 35 years ago.

One of the exhibit’s main attractions will be the collection of Calatrava’s sketch books that visitors can see virtually.

The show also includes five mockup bridges, including the one that Calatrava designed for Doha Bay which, when completed ahead of the 2022 FIFA World Cup, will extend for 40 kilometers (just under 25 miles), with some of its sections underwater.

Prague Major Adriana Krnacova brought Calatrava’s work to Prague after she saw his designs in New York.
