Freedom Rising

In this week’s installment of Fox’s The Rise of Freedom series about ongoing construction at the former World Trade Center site, host Shepard Smith takes a look at the new $3.2 billion transit hub (PATH WTC) designed by Spanish architect Santiago Calatrava. When eventually completed in 2014 it should be a fantastic building.

Calatrava has done some work here in Canada in the past; most notably, the spectacular atrium of the Allen Lambert Galleria which connects Bay Street with Heritage Square.

What a refreshing change from the monolithic concrete drivel and apathetic glass boxes that passed for so-called “modern architecture” during the latter half of the 20th century.
