What architecture! Of course, this is by Santiago Calatrava. People are inspired to become architects upon seeing this building as it is uplifting for many who long to be closer to the arts. This week, the sketch is of Spain’s Palau de les Arts Reina Sofia, which is home to all the arts as as it is both an opera house and a cultural center. Thanks to my aunt, I saw his works in my early university life. Additionally, one of his newer works is in the city, that is, the World Trade Center station (PATH). That building is truly astonishing, as well,  and has brought many supporters and detractors out of the woodwork. Nevertheless, his works are unique  due to the fact that he thinks like an engineer, but draws like an architect. This is why he is both more complex and convoluted than others, I think.
