Review: 1 WTC’s biography (Review)
Author(s): David Brussat
Publication: Architecture Here and There
Date: 11/28/2016
Abstract: “Dupré has been for two decades and remains the reigning queen of books about tall towers.” Her “chapters describing those structural complexities, how they were designed, engineered and erected, are the heart and soul of her book. The chapters unfold almost as a tale of suspense. She includes enough detail about the difficulties of getting the many centers of authority involved to cooperate . . . that one cannot help but strive to read between the lines of ego battles and turf wars.”
