One World Trade Center


  When the twin towers of the World Trade Centre were built in New York during 1960-71, they were pioneering, innovative and used the framed tube structural system. The Architect was Minoru Yamasaki and the Structural Engineers were Leslie E. Robertson Associates. The North Tower was completed in Dec. 1970 and the south tower in July 1971. They were designed to be a world-famous landmark for generations. Unfortunately, just 30 years after both towers were officially opened, they were destroyed by terrorists on September 11th 2001 taking 2,750 lives with it and resulting in huge financial loss.

As both a memorial and as a beacon of growth out of tragedy the construction of One World Trade Center, the replacement tower, began in 2006 and opened a couple of months ago. This tower originally called as Freedom Tower, is designed by David M. Childs of Skidmore, Owings & Merrill. The following infographic gives almost everything you want to know about the construction of this unbelievably iconic building (Click image for full-sized infographic).
