A New Bridge in Venice


Due to be inaugurated this month in Venice, the new bridge by Santiago Calatrava, of whom I am a great fan, crossing the Grand Canal, seems to be causing controversy amongst the Venetians. Gee, who would have thought. I think its beautiful. Remember the controversy over I.M Pei's glass Pyramid at the Louvre? Yet how could it not be. The story here at Art Daily. I will grant that money needs be spent to stop the flooding of one of my favorite places on the planet.

Yes, I like it, too. It actually looks very classy with the old architecture as a backdrop.

I,too, am a fan. He did a bridge in Redding, California (of all places), which is very beautiful as well.
