I am currently studying architectecture from Nepal. Recently i was going through the magagine and came across your design its really different. People needs guts to work according to the concept and you have succeed in doing it and presenting it to the world. I too one day would like to convey my message through architecture to the world. I am interested in studying about your concept and philosophy in creating the design.

Aunque encuentro bastante improbable que este mensaje llegue a sus ojos, quiero empezar ante todo dandole las gracias por compartir el conocimiento y la via a un nuevo orden.
Me gustaria evaluar la posibilidad de contar con su inspiracion, diseno y creacion de una obra estructura que se edificaria en Pisco, Peru, en honra a los acaecidos en el terremoto del Agosto pasado. Humilde como seria esta edificacion, algo no mayor a 100m cuadrados, seria un gran honor que esta parte del mundo tambien refleje en sus manos.

It is an honour to be able to converse here, even though I'm not sure if it is getting through. Myself, being a student of architecture at the National College of Arts, Lahore, Pakistan, happened to land on this platform, because of a student project. For that matter I wish to study your design philosophy, and design according to my interpretation. I have had a chance to walk on the Trinity Bridge in Manchester, for which i drove all the way from Bury to not come back without having missed your structure. Thanks to you, for the addition you make in architecure, Sir.
We as students have started a web magazine, its a minor thing.(Website attached www.tracearch.com) Also, please guide me with any published (accessible) data with regards to your design philosophy.

Dear Mr Calatrava,
I write my thesis on bionics and architecture and I'm a great fan of your work. My work's focus is the Turning Torso from Malmö. Is it possible to send me some plans? I really need them.
What were your idead and thought when you started to built the Torso? Can you tell me about the connection between the Torso and bionics?

hello mr. Santiago, i am an architecture student from ghana. although i am not a fan of you buildings as a whole. i am most impressed by your understanding of architecture and your structural innovation. i am a fan of straight lines and contemporary achitecture though. i greatly admire your abstract architecture knowledge and will like to meet you oneday. i have two wishes though, first to have an internship with you before i complete architecture schoo and secondly to work on a project with you oneday. we will meet oneday. till then.
