Since completion of the project, costly oversights and repairs have engendered complaints and criticism of architect and his, some say overly formal and&nbsp;extravagant designs. Suzanne also reviews a number of other projects by Calatrava (PATH Station, the Ponte della Costituzione in Venice and his winery for Domecq) which have run into similar issues.</p>
