The Second Sister
June 28, 2015
This photo was taken with my P&S out of the car window as I passed by this spot (which I do every day that I'm in Dallas). This is the start of the second Santiago Calatrava bridge over the Trinity River in Dallas. His first bridge is the Margaret Hunt Hill bridge, and this one will be the Margaret McDermont bridge. When speaking of the three bridges that he has designed for Dallas, Calatrava says that he designed them to be similar yet different, like three sisters. There's a bit of controversy in City Council as to whether the third bridge will be built or not due to cost. But this, the second bridge's construction is underway. His bridges are just incredible in design, so I'm anxious to see this one in it's finished state.
According to Wikipedia, Calatrava "is a Spanish neofuturistic architect, structural engineer, sculptor and painter. He has offices in New York City, Doha, and Zürich, where he now resides." If you get a chance to google his bridges, you will see that they are indeed amazing. I've posted several photos of his first bridge in Dallas, this will be his second, we'll have to wait and see if there's a third.
Have an amazing day today my friends!
