The St Nicholas Greek Orthodox Church, designed by Spanish architect Santiago Calatrava, has opened at the World Trade Center site in New York.

The church was built to replace a 19th-century church that was destroyed on 11 September 2001 and is a part of the redevelopment of the World Trade Center site.

Calatrava designed the church, which is located beside the 9/11 memorial built on the site of the former twin towers, to be a “sanctuary for worship” as well as a reminder of  the impact of the 11 September attacks.

“I hope to see this structure serve its purpose as a sanctuary for worship but also as a place for reflection on what the city endured and how it is moving forward,” Calatrava said.
