Profiled steel plates, forming the foundation shaft, were driven 15 m. into the ground and a further 3m into the limestone bedrock Concrete beams, poured at regular intervals on the inside of the sheeting to stabilize the steel lining against the pressure of the soil outside Concrete construction was poured onto the bedrock, 30 meters in diameter and 7 meters thick
  23. 23. CLIMBING FORMS AND BEAMS each cube were made with socalled self-compacting concrete. Because of its flow capacity, this type of concrete does not need vibrating.

  41. 41. APPRAISAL •The elemental and lyrical forms of Calatrava’s architecture, known and loved across the globe. •Santiago Calatrava exemplifies sculptural expression and engineering through architecture. Calatrava’s work is like music: well orchestrated •Although his buildings were known for their aesthetics, they never compromised on the grounds of functionality •built energy efficient structures •The fact that much of his work is centred around water which adds a further dimension to his work.
  42. 42. CRITICISM •Often criticized for impracticality •the mechanical instability of the structure and the excessive weight of the bridge •Economy •The trainstation Gare do Oriente in Lisbon is known for being very uncomfortable, especially with wind and rainy weather.
