ArchDaily recently featured a Q&A with architect, engineer, and artist Santiago Calatrava, who, along with artist/curator/critic Ai Weiwei, patron of the arts and education Kathryn Chenault, and The Metropolitan Museum of Art's longest-serving director Phillippe de Montebello, received an honorary degree at Pratt's 123rd annual commencement exercises on May 9. The interview took place in advance of the ceremony, and the post concludes with an excerpt from Calatrava's commencement remarks.
