Spanish architect awarded damages by critical website

SPAIN’S foremost architect has been awarded €30,000 in a lawsuit against a website critical of his work.

Santiago Calatrava won damages from the Valencia branch of left-wing party Esquerra Unida – founders of the website Calatravatelaclava – which translates as ‘Calatrava bleeds you dry’.

The party launched the site in 2012 to criticise Calatrava’s over-budget ‘City of Arts and Sciences’ project, designed to put Valencia on the map.

Among his famous works are Florida Polytechnic University and the TGV station in Lyon, France.
