A book and accompanying website on all aspects, including history, design, financing, and construction, of America's tallest building.

One World Trade Center: The Biography of the Building responds to the public’s great curiosity about how the new skyscraper that anchors the World Trade Center, unlike any in memory, was built. The book explores the super tower’s planning, aesthetic premise, and historical origins. It examines the tower’s groundbreaking safety measures, its structural and construction challenges, and the politics of commemoration and financing. Extensive first-person accounts of those responsible—from ironworkers to architects to financiers—reveal their motivations and struggles. Lavishly illustrated with photographs and plans, the book also includes explanatory diagrams, maps, and critical timelines. An interactive website complements and expands upon the publication, allowing the public to track the WTC’s progress and access in-depth interviews and film clips. Above all, this is a profoundly human story about the heroic efforts and dogged determination that raised the tallest building in the nation.
