The Transportation Hub At The World Trade Center Looks Straight Outta The Future

No you're not looking at the first set photos from Blade Runner 2, this is the phenomenal World Trade Center Transportation Hub.

It's called the Oculus and it was designed by Santiago Calatrava. It opens officially to the world next week on March 3rd according to Curbed.

The transit center will include a mall but its main purpose is to link 11 subway lines and path trains, in effect, it's a sci-fi train station from the future, for today.


Luckily, thanks to Social Media, many have already got a good glimpse of the controversial, but quite staggering architectural feat.

The building sits adjacent to the 9/11 Memorial and Museum and One World Trade. From the outside it looks half like a Stegosaurus and half like a dove in flight.


It also comes complete with a colossal 330-foot-long operable skylight. It's reported to have cost a whopping $4 billion but the sheer scale of the thing is hard to turn your nose up at.

Topics: 9/11, World Trade Center
