Wings of the Oculus

Exterior, Oculus Center – New York, New York

I’ve recently talked about the Oculus Center. Remarking on its extraordinary and unique architecture, including a photo essay of the interior. While I’ve shown a glimpse of the exterior, today’s post shows it in its full glory.

The organic, otherworldly design is consistent inside and out — looking like an alien winged creature. The contrast to the boxy glass office buildings makes it all the more remarkable.

While considerable on the outside, much of its volume extends underground. The Oculus Center, with underground corridors reaching like tentacles to nearby developments, is deceptively substantial.
