Santiago Calatrava's multi-billion dollar transit hub has finally opened in Lower Manhattan, and it is breathtaking! The Westfield Mall shops which will line the perimeter of the oval-shaped Oculus pavilion are not open yet, but it is virtually impossible to take a bad picture in this place.
The gleaming white structure is bathed in natural light which streams through a long, curved skylight, and the luminescence of the Italian marble-clad floor makes the whole space look like it is covered in a sheet of ice. If you are in NYC, get yourself down here and enjoy one of the world's most beautiful – and functional – public spaces.
