St. Nicholas Church, New York

St. Nicholas Greek Orthodox Church in Manhattan, New York was built in 1832 but was completely destroyed by the collapse of Tower 2 of the World Trade Center during the terrorist attacks on the 11th of September 2001.
The renowned Spanish architect Santiago Calatrava was commissioned for the reconstruction of the church, as in his plan he combined the tradition and liturgy of the Greek Orthodox church with the 21st century. The new St. Nicholas Church is around seven metres above street level and sits at the Eastern end of the new Liberty Park of the World Trade Center. The higher position of the church makes it a spiritual beacon of hope and a symbol for the rebirth of the community and the city.

When it is finished in 2021, St. Nicholas Church will shine softly even in the dark. Its’ dome-shaped structure is clad with 1.5 mm, translucent LIXOS® Real Stone Veneer made from white Vermont marble.
