I wondered what this was?

I took this shot at the East entry to the Oculus at the World Trade Center site in NYC. When i saw what the camera captured, i couldn't figure out where the image came from since I couldn't find it with just my eye. The camera saw this grey beast sticking out of the wall of the building and my eye saw a white rib system as a decorative add to the wall and roof.  Santiago Calavatra, the architect, either planned this dichometric feature or it just happened. Either way... brilliant. BY the way, all this extraordinary design cost a whopping $3.7 BILLION (with a B). And this is great news. It shows that extraordinary design is worth the cost and is sometimes even supported by investors.
