One World Trade Center: Biography of the Building (Book)
Title: One World Trade Center: Biography of the Building
Author: Judith Dupre
Abstract: The new World Trade Center represents one of the most complex collaborations in human history. Nearly every state in the nation, a dozen countries around the world, and more than 25,000 workers helped raise the tower, which consumed ninety million pounds of steel, one million square feet of glass, and enough concrete to pave a sidewalk from New York to Chicago. With more than seventy interviews with the people most intimately involved, and unprecedented access to the building site, suppliers, and archives, Dupré unfurls the definitive story of fourteen years of conflict and controversy-and its triumphant resolution. This fascinating, oversize book delivers new insight into the 1,776-foot-tall engineering marvel, from design and excavation through the final placement of its spire. It offers: •Access to the minds of world-class architects, engineers, ironworkers, and other tradespeople •Panoramas of New York from One World Observatory-1,268 feet above the earth •Dramatic cutaways that show the building's advanced structural technologies •A time-lapse montage showing the evolution of the sixteen-acre site •Chronologies tracking design, construction, and financial milestones, with rare historic photographs It also features extensive tour of the entire Trade Center, including in-depth chapters on Two, Three, Four, and Seven World Trade Center; the National September 11 Memorial & Museum; Liberty Park; St. Nicholas National Shrine; and the soaring Transportation Hub. One World Trade Center is the only book authorized by the Port Authority of New York & New Jersey, and the one book necessary to understand the new World Trade Center in its totality. This is a must-have celebration of American resilience and ingenuity for all who are invested in the rebuilding of Ground Zero.

Architecture, History and the Public Realm (Conference Paper/Presentation)
Title: Architecture, History and the Public Realm
Author: Judith Dupré
Abstract: Whether a structure is new or old, telling the story of a place enhances the property's value for tenants and their employees. Anchoring a building in the city's history all but guarantees that it will be more efficiently integrated into the public realm. Acceptance and appreciation increases for occupants, but also for the public, who may never enter the building. Providing this history is an act of civic generosity and a powerful instrument for change. Talk given to a private group of international real estate investors.
