( 4 )

Overview

On September 11, 2001 in front of the incredulous eyes of the world, the Twin Towers of New York collapsed burying thousands of innocent people below the rubble as well as the sense of civilized life in a great city. That day, the unimaginable become reality.

The World Trade Center, designed and built as a dream, seemed an engineering risk but soon become the heart of a business, commercial and financial center without comparison. With a height of roughly 1,360 feet, the Twin ...

Overview

On September 11, 2001 in front of the incredulous eyes of the world, the Twin Towers of New York collapsed burying thousands of innocent people below the rubble as well as the sense of civilized life in a great city. That day, the unimaginable become reality.

The World Trade Center, designed and built as a dream, seemed an engineering risk but soon become the heart of a business, commercial and financial center without comparison. With a height of roughly 1,360 feet, the Twin Towers were the most visible symbols of the World Trade Center; they skimmed the sky like modern Gothic cathedrals, the shining image of New York's pride and creative energy.

This volume commemorates that extraordinary work of engineering, not just with spectacular photographs that made it an unmistakable icon of power and wealth, but also through the illustrated history of its short but radiant existence, and with an entire chapter dedicated to an account of its tragic epilogue.

World Trade Center is also an emotional and regretful tribute to one of the most famous modern monuments in the world that was a symbol of peace and progress for twenty-five years.

    A MUST BUY!!!!!

    I purchased this book from a local shopping mall as reference material for a scale model replica of the former World Trade Center Complex I'm building. I was totally stunned when I looked at the high quality photos that are in this book. I got way more than I paid for, and it will be a great help for me when I build my model. I would surely recommend this book to anyone!

    Breathtaking

    I own many photographic books on the World Trade Center towers, but this one truly stands out against the rest. The colors and angles of many of the photos are outstanding. Every page is overflowing with detail, and you are always taken to a different part of the World Trade Center complex. There is also great detail found in the 9/11 photos, much of which makes the reality and enormity of the catastrophe come alive again in an eerie way. But I found this book more as a reflection on the life that once was, capturing fully the 'beauty' (if it could possibly be called that) of New York's beloved Twin Towers. I highly recommend it!!!
