NEW YORK – Santiago Calatrava, one of the world’s leading architects, is reportedly the leading candidate to be the design architect for the new Church of St. Nicholas at Ground Zero. The renowned architect from Spain is already involved at the World Trade Center site as the designer of the iconic but controversial PATH transportation terminal. He is known to the Hellenic World through the magnificent roof he created for the 2004 Greek Olympics Stadium in Athens that is both visually striking and necessary to shade the spectators from the brutal summer sun. The committee headed by architect Nicholas Koutsomitis isn’t commenting on the competitive bidding for the commission to build what could become one of the most famous Orthodox houses of worship in the world.
