WHAT IS A BRIDGE? THE MAKING OF CALATRAVA'S BRIDGE IN SEVILLE

This book, the first one to document Calatrava's design work in detail, describes each step of the bridge's design and construction, explaining the architectural intentions that motivated Calatrava's decisions along the way. The Alamillo Bridge, nearly 150 meters tall, has an inclined pylon whose own weight balances that of the deck and traffic. Built for the 1992 Universal Exposition in Seville, Spain, the bridge immediately received great international attention that continues today.
