Due to its bland ubiquity, a Calatrava piece is no more distinctive than a chain store situating itself on a city’s shore. It’s a structural franchise—a kind of architectural Best Buy, one that’s catastrophically expensive, doesn’t allow returns, and has no real warranty.
Instead of coming up with something relevant to the place, telling a story about what came before or revealing previously overlooked visual details within a city, these structures don’t connect with any local authenticity or individuality in these cities. They’re not architecture at all, in a sense; they’re more like huge pieces of urban jewelry draped over a city’s chest, like some crazed husband throwing Bulgari at his wife, hoping it will finally make her love him."
