Spanish/Swiss architect Santiago Calatrava is finally nearing the completion of the World Trade Center Transportation Hub, and Toronto-based photographer Michael Muraz was recently allowed access inside to snap these amazing photos of the building.
Set to open this year, the "glorious" birdlike structure boasts a 355-foot-long operable "Oculus" - a "slice of the New York sky - that floods the hub's interior with natural light, all the way down 60-feet below street level to the PATH train platform.
I wonder how long it will take us to forget that the project is $2 billion over budget once we get to pass under these beautiful spines every day?
