Genius Spanish architect Santiago Calatrava is the author of the most impressive architectural masterpiece of steel and glass in various countries worldwide. His unique style is inspired by the forms of nature. He himself says that for him the world of geometry is as important as the structure and the world. For him they are inspired with a variety of materials and inexhaustible world of nature. He believes that the building must comply with the spirit and mood of the city and the people. Perfect combination of glass, light, metal, white flowers and long clean lines and harmony astonishes with its exact location in space.

Unique is the sense of movement that Calatrava was able to create the static buildings. Perhaps this is why one of the most characteristic elements in the drafts of the great architect is a bird in flight. Smooth elegant bird flight impresses visitors to the Museum of Art in Milwaukee. The building is constructed of white concrete and resembles the outstretched wings that open and close with the closing of the museum. Such a bird motif is embedded in the base of another project, Calatrava – Qatar Photography Museum. In the exquisite design of the museum is provided to external walls opens and closes according to the amount of light.
