It's only a matter of time before the Oculus becomes a staple in films that place in New York. I can just imagine suspenseful chases through the grand white interior -- What a backdrop, both inside and out!!

So what are the small circular holes in the floor of the oculus for? They all appear to be very carefully lined up, i'm guessing they are not just decorative?

I'm assuming they're related to the heated floors.

I assumed there are power connections underneath.
Somewhat common in modern open spaces, especially malls.

Probably power, and possibly anchoring points for temporary stages and the like.

Not sure, but the shopping stores will be opening in August!

I want to see a chase between the Fulton Center and Winter Garden, all indoors, possibly on motorcycles somehow...

I can assure you some stunt coordinator is looking at the "diving board" steps and thinking "Yep, we can get good motorcycle jump between those things".

Or someone parachuting in, getting tangled up in the spines. Perhaps a BASE jumper off 1WTC?

Hey, valencian here. I feel bad about new yorkers to be suffering a Calatrava's work there. He and his team always do the same thing. They present a project with an X budget, and when it's finished the building/structure has cost twice, the triple or even fourth times (as the Palau de les Arts, for example). And his projects always have problems like slippery floors, leaks, fissures... It may look nice and white at the beginning, but they are usually super deceitful and end up all yellowish and rusty, with very bad finishing...

Here in Valencia we have this website http://www.calatravanonoscalla.com/ you should check it.

P.S.: sorry for my bad english

Has anyone heard any news about when the area outside around the Oculus will open? I think it would be great to be able to walk down Fulton St on a sunny day, under the Oculus on my way to Brookfield Place.

You'll be waiting for at least a year. As far as I know, the next thing on the plate is to finally open the 2WTC portal (seriously), followed by the remaining PATH tracks, so that they can fully open the West Concourse and permanently close the temporary PATH entrance.

It would be cool to hang a wire between the two balconies and, well, you know...
