“Way of Light” in Santiago Calatrava’s Oculus, New York

The “Way of Light” in the World Trade Center’s Oculus marked the anniversary of the terrorist attacks of September 11, 2001 by casting a swathe of sunlight across the floor of the building at exactly 10:28am, the time the second tower collapsed. The Oculus is angled to catch the sunlight in its skylight every year on the anniversary of the attacks, reported Blouin Artinfo/ World Architecture News.
