Designer Thomas Perrone, a student at the Art Institute of Philadelphia in collaboration with Jason Mouser has created a chess set using the architectual work of Spanish-born Architect Santiago Calatrava as source material.

The set depicts the Tenerife Concert Hall in the form of Pawn, the Valencia Opera House as Rook, the Communications Tower as Knight, the 80 South Street Housing as Bishop, the Fordham Spire as Queen and the Turning Torso as the King.
