Abstract:

For a time, its towers were the tallest buildings on Earth and The World Trade Center -- an engineering marvel -- came to symbolize American prosperity and strength. Recalling a more innocent era, this DVD was filmed just months before the towers' tragic demise. It charts the history of the towers' construction, revealing the controversies, decisions and innovations that surrounded the project. Through interviews with those who proudly and ambitiously dreamt, designed, and built the complex, it examines the monument as both architectural achievement and cultural icon. What emerges is not only a tribute to a building but a story of the birth and growth of an American symbol.
