He has his own style and it works everywhere and many people like it!

Why should he change it?

Fantastic Calatrava. Nothing less would be expected.

Very nice, but just too expensive. Especially compared to the money given to the Brussels stations, who are far more important, and some look(ed) just as shitty als the "old" Guillemins...

Yes I still don't think Liège deserves a station like this.
Off course the old station needed a renovation badly. But the amount spent on this project is ridiculous.
Brussels or Ghent deserved Calatrava more, judged only on the passengers every day.

Charleroi Metro

Anyone got any construction news about the Charlleroi Metro extensions. Aparently they have plans to extend one line and open one of the unfinished/abandoned lines started in the 1980's. 2010 is the supposedly completion date?

I agree... I like this project cos I like Calatrava's work, I just wish he innovated a bit more... his buildings are way too repetitive.

I think that this project deserves a sunnier clime.

Quite spectacular though - i couldn't believe it when i went through the station on the Thalys train - knew instantly it was a Calatrava work - though the town was a bit small for such a station but this is europe....

I'm sorry, bud I don't like the station. It won't represent the city of Liége. It is to modern for it. It doesn't look like a station. It is a great design for an indoor skipiste or something.
