Summary
No setting is more important in the history of office tower design than the famous skyline of Manhattan. After the 9/11 attacks scarred the cityscape, architects began to rethink the priorities involved in dramatically vertical building design. This episode profiles 7 World Trade Center, the first building to be constructed on Ground Zero. Viewers will encounter the structure's surprising shape-a result of changes in its downtown environment-and discover how the building has taken occupant safety to new levels with a thickened concrete core, stairwells 50 percent wider than code requirements, and a lobby with a blast-resistant glass facade.
