"For the past several years, Denver International Airport and I have worked with a team of dedicated architects and engineers to try to bring this ambitious project to fruition," he said in a statement. "From the beginning we have had the project's best interests at heart and although we have decided to part ways, I wish DIA all the best with the South Terminal Redevelopment Program and its future success." — denverpost.com
Noted international architect Santiago Calatrava has informed Denver International Airport officials that he and his firm are halting their work on DIA's South Terminal Redevelopment Program and are withdrawing from the venture.
