Today's archidose #716

As promised when I posted photos of Santiago Calatrava's PATH - West Concourse (2013) in New York City, here are some of my photos of the glass pavilion at Brookfield Place (2013) by Pelli Clarke Pelli. Situated up a flight of escalators at the west end of the PATH concourse, the pavilion makes a transition between the World Trade Center site and Battery Park City's World Financial Center and Winter Garden further west.

The approach from the West Concourse:

The tree-like, bundled columns on either side of the escalators come into view on ascent:

  1. Not a very exciting sight... I find they should have done something to express the points of contact between structure and floor/ceiling. It's just flat...
