His elegant and daring Montjuic Communications Tower in Barcelona , Spain (1991) in the heart of the 1992 Olympic site was a turning point in his career, leading to a wide range of commissions. The Quadracci Pavilion (2001) of the Milwaukee Art Museum was his first US building.

Calatrava's style has been heralded as bridging the division between structural engineering and architecture . He is also a prolific sculptor and painter, claiming that the practice of architecture combines all the arts into one.
