Design + Architecture

The Visionaries

by Suzanne Wales


On the horizon: The PATH Terminal, NYC

Calatrava's new PATH Terminal at the World Trade Center site will be a major transport hub connecting New York's subway system with trains across the Hudson River. Stakes were high over the emotionally charged project, but the proposal was greeted with applause from both the architecture critics and the city's aesthete elite. It harks back to Calatrava's earlier works, such as Lyon's famed TGV station, which looks like a bird on the point of take-off. But the PATH terminal—set for completion in 2009—takes the concept a step further, with spiky "wings" made of glass and steel that will move, letting natural light and air into the underground terminal on those muggy New York afternoons.
