Picture $US4 billion worth of cash stacked up in the shape of a train station. This is pretty much what the World Trade Center Transportation Hub looks like. Except more surreal. You'd also maybe need to throw in a whole bunch of screw ups and missed deadlines, because this alien cathedral of a train station is one expensive mess.
Aymann Ismail recently snuck into the never-ending construction project and snapped some of the first ever images of the inside for Animal New York. It looks very cool -- though now that the WTC Transportation Hub is expected to cost more than the tower itself, the Santiago Calatrava-designed train station better get a lot cooler.
