The architect, sculptor and painter, Santiago Calatrava, who enjoys respect on an international scale, is active in the Swiss city of Zürich. He will introduce himself in Prague by both his free art and his architectural models, making viewers familiar with his most significant realizations scattered throughout the globe. One of his enigmatic works is the New York World Trade Center terminal in the form of massive looming wings, completed in 2016.
Calatrava was awarded the Auguste Peret Prize for architecture by the International Union of Architects (1987), golden medal by the American Institute of Architects (2005), and the 2005 European Prize for Architecture. Among other places, he exhibited in the Museum of Modern Art and the Metropolitan Museum in New York.
