Cost overruns and continual delays are forcing architect Santiago Calatrava to make considerable changes to the original design he submitted for the World Trade Center’s majestic transportation hub. With some urging from the Port Authority and the Mayor himself, Santiago Calatrava’s “lamp of hope” has been thoroughly extinguished: “Among the first elements to go — without fanfare or public announcement — were the skylights over the mezzanine.” The new date for completion has been set for the 10th anniversary of the attacks: September 11th, 2011. |CityRoom|
