Until I came across the Calatrava Chess Set, I never considered how perfect architectural designs were for chess pieces. This particular set pays tribute to the famous Spanish-born architect Santiago Calatrava. Both simple and statuesque, each piece is a stunning recreation of some of Calatrava’s more unique designs.

Created by Thomas Perrone, the Calatrava Chess Set features six designs in particular: the Tenerife Concert Hall, Valencia Opera House, Communications Tower, 80 South Street Housing, Fordham Spire and Turning Torso. Enjoy the images of these intricately detailed pieces in the gallery above.
