BIONIC ASPECTS IN THE CREATIVITY OF SANTIAGO CALATRAVA


The article is devoted to the «bionic» aspects in the works of the well-known Spanish architect and engineer Santiago Calatrava (born in 1951) and his design consultancy «Santiago Calatrava’s Design». Analysis involves some of his realised projects, such the airport buildings in Bilbao (Spain), the railway station in Lisbon (Portugal), residential tower in Malmo (Sweden), the Olympic sports complex in Athens (Greece), Milwaukee Art Museum (USA), City of Arts and Sciences in Valencia (Spain). The main emphasis is made on most striking natural "imitations" reproduced in master plans, in architectural compositions and engineering solutions of all these buildings. An attempt is made to identify the historical roots of S.Calatrava’s creative style and his place in the classification of modern architectural styles.

Key words: Santiago Calatrava, «Santiago Calatrava’s design» style, architectural bionics, realised projects, creativity systematization
