The World Trade Center
Illustrated Lecture and Book Signing

From David W. Dunlap’s 12/3/2012 New York Times review of The World Trade Center: “Mr. Robins’s collection evokes this same [upbeat] spirit and adds a rich dimension to trade center history.”
Originally published in 1987 while the Twin Towers still stood–brash and controversial, a new symbol of the city and the country–Robins’s book offered the first serious consideration of the planning and design of the World Trade Center. A decade after the disaster, a new World Trade Center is rising on the site. It is only natural, then, that we will find ourselves thinking about what life was like in the original Center. This new edition of the book–expanded to include copies of some of the documents upon which the text was based–is offered as a memory of the World Trade Center as it once was.
