Summary
Looks back at the events of 9/11 and reviews the major investigations into the causes of the collapse of the World Trade Center. Compares the collapse of the Twin Towers with the destruction of the Alfred P. Murrah building in Oklahoma City. Discusses the structural features and fireproofing methods that made these buildings vulnerable and the costs, practicality, and possibility of completely correcting these weaknesses. Features two new buildings that demonstrate advances in skyscraper safety and construction, World Trade Center 7 and Leslie Robertson's World Financial Center in Shanghai
