Sure, but can I slide down it?
I have always found Hadid to be full of rather arbitrary design decisions resulting in blah architecture. If you’re looking for exciting, flowing organic forms, Calatrava creates much more inspiring shapes that are the result of an actual understanding of the forces acting upon the structure. That seems more laudable to me.
Yeap personally I likes his designs much better but it seems many of his projects have structural and financial issues. There is actually a website dedicated just to highlight his failures. http://thefullcalatrava.wordpress.com
But still his designs are great regardless
I'd hardly call cost overruns "his failures" - particularly on public projects. Similarly, decisions to abandon or not build a project can come down to many factors (just as George Lucas about his proposed museums in San Francisco, Chicago, and San Francisco again, before settling on Los Angeles). To me a "failure" for an architect would be either creating a truly nonfunctional building (such as Charles Moore's original Hood Museum at Dartmouth, where the entryway was hidden, and the walkway to it was along the inner arc of a wing, with a slanted metal roof above that caused all snowfall to plummet off the roof and onto the walkway), or literal structural failures (such as building collapse).
Eh - all of Wright’s roofs leak. I think there’s always a trade off.
