Artwork and Models by Santiago Calatrava

“Pure Geometry,” a sculpture from Santiago Calatrava’s exhibit in St. Petersburg, Russia.

Calatrava sculptures such as “Eye” combine the physical investigation of Kenneth Snelson’s tensegrity sculptures with the futurist solutions of Constantin Brâncusi's work.

Calatrava donated his model for the Church of St. John the Divine, an unbuilt project for New York, to the permanent collection of the Hermitage, along with several other works.

A view of the Calatrava exhibit in the Winter Palace’s Nicholas Hall, with the model of the World Trade Center Path Terminal, currently under construction, in the foreground. Visible in the background, within the arch, are two egg sculptures: “Almost Spring” (left) and “In Paradise” (right).

“Spinning Helmet,” a Calatrava sculpture on display in the exhibit. His work in sculpture merited a stand-alone show at New York’s Metropolitan Museum of Art in 2005.
