Quote from the press release:

"The world caught its first glimpse today of the Port Authority’s enduring monument to the heroism of September 11, 2001, when world-renowned architect Santiago Calatrava unveiled soaring, spectacular design concepts for the bistate agency’s World Trade Center Transportation Hub, which will significantly improve mass-transit connections across Lower Manhattan."

"The glass roof above the hub’s freestanding grand pavilion, featuring ribbed arches that evoke a cathedral, will open each year on the anniversary of the September 11 terrorist attacks. Glass-and-steel wings will rise up to 150 feet. Natural light will reach rail platforms 60 feet below street level."

thx Roberto :beer:

I'm realy glad to see a new Calatrava work, but a bit surprised with the exterior images, nothing to say about the interior images, the color and light, corespond in perfection with the imagery of Calatrava .
I just whish that this britness was aplied in his work at Lisbon(my home town), i think it's quite grey there !!

About the exterior images, i realy think that spanish work is far more developed then that !! It miss a lot of detail, the light is pour, shadows....:surprised

Like to know the name of the mate that did those !!
