Back in October, we revealed renderings for Santiago Calatrava’s Ground Zero Church, which will overlook the 9/11 Memorial. Now we have a BBC video that features Calatrava explaining his vision for Saint Nicholas Church. ArchDaily, who spotted the feature, writes that “the building, which broke ground last year, has been described by Calatrava as a ‘tiny jewel’ for lower Manhattan.” Moreover, when completed, his creation will be the only non-secular building at Ground Zero. Watch the video above to find out what inspired his unique design, as well as the starchitect’s thoughts on creating a structure for a site with such historical and cultural significance.
