Calatrava is also noted for his many bridge designs which utilise curving tubular steel arches that rake across bridge decks, or tall, slanting cantilever spars from which cables are stayed in such an uncharacteristic but distinguishing fashion that they are immediately recognisable as his. Whilst in Spain I had the pleasure to walk across:
- Alameda Bridge (1995) – Valencia;
- Puente de l’Assult de l’Or (2008) Valencia;
- Bach de Roda – Felipe II Bridge (1987) – Barcelona
- Alamillo Bridge (1992)- Seville and
- Campo Volantin (“Zubizuri”) Bridge (1997) – Bilbao
Outside of Spain Calatrava has built pedestrian, light rail and vehicular bridges in the Netherlands, Argentina, England, USA, Greece, Canada, Ireland, Israel and Italy.
