This is the unsubmitted Calatrava (See en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Santiago_Calatrava) design for the ziggurat transportation hub. A note on the image: the stars are stolen from another image on which, no doubt, someone lavished love and attention, but, really, stars are stars and you can't copyright them. Anyway, unless you are NASA all star pictures are taken from the same point of view.
The Calatrava "Medio Padana Station" in Reggio Emilia is really worth of a visit - I enjoyed the time there so much - absolutely ... amazing!
Some more photos into my Calatrava Set.
El Puente atirantado de Jerusalén es obra de Santiago Calatrava quién lo construyó entre 2005 y 2008, siendo inaugurado en 24 de junio de ese año. Se encuentra en el noroeste de la ciudad de Jerusalén (Israel) y marca la entrada a la ciudad.
El conjunto de los cables y la forma de la estructura sugiere un arpa gigante "el arpa de rey David" como un símbolo de la ciudad sagrada. En referencia a esta forma muchos habitantes lo llaman "el Puente de Cuerdas".
The Jerusalem stayed bridge designed by Santiago Calatrava who built it between 2005 and 2008, was inaugurated on June 24 of that year. It is located in the northwest of the city of Jerusalem (Israel) and marks the entrance to the city.
All the cables and the shape of the structure suggests a harp giant "the harp of King David" as a symbol of the holy city. Referring to this as many people call it "String Bridge".

La Guardia - La Rioja Alavesa
The building (designed by Santiago Calatrava) is conceived as an element completely integrated in the surrounding landscape and, at the same time, as an autonomous site-specific sculpture.
The Bodegas and Bebidas group wanted a building that would be an icon for its prestigeous new wine "la Rioja Alavesa" and at the same time accomodate the precise and rigorous program of spaces needed to make, store and sell wine.
The site is uneven, with pronounced grade changes of as much as 10 meters from the highest levels in the north, to the lowest in the south. About half of the site is occupied by vineyards.
Unfortunately the building was closed that day...so no look inside.
