Photographer's Note

Athens Olympic Sports Complex, built in 1982 in northeast Athens, has the signature of Calatrava. As both an architect and an engineer, he easily identifies with both disciplines. He often creates innovative works that depend on a firm grasp of both the creative and structural aspects of design. His skills as an engineer allow him to create sculptural surfaces and unusual spaces.

Despite an influential presence within the European architectural community, Calatrava has rarely designed a totally enclosed building. Rather, most of his creations are open structures.
