World Trade Center Transportation Hub

WTC Transportation Hub Iwtc-transportation-hub-v[2]

Since the opening of the World Trade Center Transportation Hub is celebrated today, a few photos from last fall to illustrate the construction process. The spanish architect Santiago Calatrava was responsible for the design. The so-called ‘Oculus’ is supposed to resemble a bird being released from a child’s hand. Due to cost control the original plan for a mechanically opening roof was not carried out.
