Santiago Calatrava @ 92nd St Y

Last week I went with a classmate to hear Santiago Calatrava speak at the 92nd Street Y.  I was in love with his sculptures he made from his child's blocks and toys, working in a small scale to create a series of studies on ways to suspend a weight. He was very humble and soft-spoken, and I was particularly comforted and inspired, as a student, to hear of how he started as an architect with his first project - a balcony. He said he treated it as if it was a bridge, and gave it as much love and attention as any big project would get.

Above are some of my notes and sketches from the lecture.
