World Trade Center Station (Oculus)
Architect: Santiago Calatrava Architects & Engineers
Owner: Port Authority of New York & New Jersey
Envisioned by Santiago Calatrava to be soaring wings, the Oculus is one of the world's most iconic buildings, and presented a unique opportunity afforded by the Port Authority to photograph a building at various intervals of its construction. It's no surprise that photographing an active construction site is awkward, it is a pleasant surprise to realize how such a setting lends itself to more artistic photographs than are commonly the purview of architectural photography.
