This is a design by the renowned Spanish architect Santiago Calatrava for St. Nicholas Orthodox Church at the World Trade Center, New York (credit: Santiago Calatrava LLC, Zurich). Calatrava is one of my favourite architects.

The interesting feature in his design here is its strong Byzantine architectural elements, as furthermore an Orthodox church should be. The Byzantine heritage still influences the architecture of churches, public buildings, monasteries and other constructions all over the Orthodox world and in places where a considerable Christian Orthodox population lives, as in New York.

As for the St. Nicholas Greek Orthodox Church at the World Trade Center, it was also destroyed on the Black Day of 11 September 2001 (I still remember vividly that day and the shock that caused to the people around me). But now it is reconstructed, considerably larger than its predecessor.
