Pratt Institute is proud to announce a new exhibition of the world-renowned artist, architect, and engineer Santiago Calatrava. This work, titled S7 was a part of seven monumental sculptures installed along the median of Park Avenue in New York City in 2015. The artist’s name has been most closely associated with his celebrated architectural designs of bridges and transportation centers built throughout the world, including the “Oculus” World Trade Center Transportation Hub in New York completed in 2016. Additionally, he has exhibited at The Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York (2005), The State Hermitage Museum in St. Petersburg (2012), and the Vatican Museum in Rome (2013). In reference to this series of prodigious sculptures Calatrava said “their relation to the natural world suggests a link between man and nature, implying the sculptures are found objects in a human forest.” Calatrava received an honorary doctorate of fine arts from Pratt Institute in 2012, conferred in recognition of his achievements as an architect, artist, and engineer.
