My decision to document the rebuilding of the World Trade Center was made on July 4, 2009. I soon noted its steady progress revealed New York City’s desire for new buildings of architectural beauty. The architects, Daniel Libeskind and David Childs, offer a vision that is both sweeping and dignified. The towers recall the classic idea of a traditional New York skyscraper, with their cool elegance and symmetry. As of 2013, One World Trade Center, also referred to as the Freedom Tower, is considered to be among the tallest skyscrapers in the United States. It has made the city’s skyline bold and sweeping again, as a tribute to people’s aspirations and imagination. Each building began with a layer of concrete that formed a safe, protective blast wall. Now hidden beneath glass, these walls are no longer visible—unless witnessed in documentary photographs. Yet it can be seen these walls were beautiful in their own right, much like strong Roman columns. Each tower has risen at the hands of men and women, ironworkers and engineers—all dedicated to their tasks. Here, the workers’ actions take center stage. In viewing the new World Trade Center, we must recognize the years this endeavor has taken. Their skill and determination is apparent. But their task is large and will continue until all the buildings are completed.
