Liège-Guillemins: Train Station by Santiago Calatrava

To visit any space designed by the famed architect Santiago Calatrava for me is always a spiritual experience. His train station in Belgium’s third largest city of Liége was no different. Expansive, soaring and brilliantly light, the building sent shivers down my spine as I literally had to contain myself from dissolving into the structure and the seemingly endless surrounding space beyond. If Calatrava’s purpose is to make a person’s soul fly, then once again he has truly outdone himself.
