I don't think Calatrava is nearly as "rational" an architect as Foster and can be given over to a more expressionistic approach.
I think both Libeskind and Calatrava work with a sort of openness and also with more complex forms than many of their peers. Hopefully their collaboration can build on that.
I also think, given the lack of controversy leading up to the announcement, that Libeskind and Calatrava are quite willing to collaborate. Its quite possible that Calatrava is there at Libeskind's suggestion. There's no hint that Calatrava is being forced into the project like Silverstein did with Childs.
