PROF KNOF: Architectural Healing


SEEING THE LIGHT | Architecture as a means of healing. 

Every time I am in New York I like to come here for a moment of reflection. The World Trade Center Hub Oculus designed by Santiago Calatrava is a dynamic physical structure as a symbol of strength, healing, and growth from a place of pain. Santiago Calatrava has long been one of my favourite architects, better known for building bridges than buildings it is clear to see that he is a natural connector. In life we have a choice we can keep a wound alive or we can choose to grow from it, to build with new meaning, presence, and spirit.

To me, this is such a dynamic and significant structure. Rather than allowing the site to remain empty as a representation of fear, terror, and pain, Calatrava has created a unique futuristic building symbolising hope, growth, and restored faith. It also connects. It is a main transportation hub connecting New York and New Jersey while also intentionally providing a spiritual connection to the heavens with a strategically aligned oculus.
