Exceptional evening
The Olympic Museum has the pleasure of inviting you to an exceptional evening in honour of Santiago Calatrava, in the framework of the exhibition currently on show: Santiago Calatrava: Architecture and Olympism.
 
Worldwide acclaimed creations…
Acclaimed worldwide, Santiago Calatrava’s creations can be found in all four corners of the globe, including France, Spain, Argentina and the USA. He has strongly contributed to the success of the Olympic Games, with his spectacular Montjuic communications tower in Barcelona, and the futuristic vault of the Olympic stadium and the dazzling velodrome roof in Athens. His many structures suspended between earth and sky, fabulously light, dynamic and expressive, testify to the talent of this virtuoso architect. Over the course of the evening, Santiago Calatrava will describe his latest projects to us.
 
Exhibition open until 10 p.m.
At the end of the talk, the exhibition Santiago Calatrava: Architecture and Olympism will be open until 10 p.m. for this special occasion.
