Previously released as World Trade Center: A Modern Marvel.

One of the most massive publicly funded construction projects ever undertaken, the World Trade Center was an engineering marvel. For a time, its famous twin towers were the tallest buildings on earth, and the total complex, with seven buildings, an underground shopping concourse and a plaza modeled after Venice's St. Marks Square, included over 10 million square feet of office space.

This comprehensive look at the toppled landmark includes extensive interviews with many of the people who were involved in the planning, design and construction of the WORLD TRADE CENTER. Executives at Minoru Yamasaki Associates recall how the plans were shaped, and explain how the engineering decisions they made directly affected the final appearance of the complex, and Carol Willis, the Founder and Director of the Skyscraper Museum, reflects on the many innovations that made the World Trade Center among the most influential and important building complexes ever made.
