Oculus. Santiago Calatrava
As one of the biggest names in contemporary architecture, engineer-cum-architect Santiago Calatrava is internationally famous for the conception and masterful execution of structures akin to high art. Taking inspiration from nature, his work mimics the shapes and motions of organic entities, as can be witnessed in the Turning Torso skyscraper in Sweden, the Milwaukee Art Museum in Wisconsin, and the recently completed World Trade Center Transportation Hub in downtown Manhattan. Calatrava: Oculus New York is the authority on the already-iconic building, sure to be canonized as one of the most beautiful public buildings of the twenty-first century.
