Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

It would be hard to envision another book taking more seriously the construction of One World Trade Center as the consummation of so many trades, so many technical innovations, and so much politics all at the same time. The National Endowment for the Arts, Humanities Magazine
An astonishing union of technology and art. Christian Science Monitor
Magisterial, meticulously researched, and handsomely illustrated. O, The Oprah Magazine
With superb writing and awesome photography, One World Trade Center by Judith Dupré is a masterpiece of a book in every aspect. San Francisco Book Review
Like the building itself, One World Trade Center offers a remarkable view, thoughtfully piecing together the complex history of rebuilding at the World Trade Center site with insightful perspectives and awe-inspiring photography. The book, as much as the architectural achievement it chronicles, is a celebration of vitality, vision, perseverance, and resilience in the aftermath of tragedy. Alice M. Greenwald, Director of the 9/11 Memorial Museum
Judith Dupré has written about One World Trade Center in the most readable way, with sensitivity, scholarship, superb photography, and wide interviews with those of us involved in this long-evolving project. She has achieved what many thought was impossible-a book that is both popular and scholarly, and the one account that is comprehensive and accurate. David Childs, Design Partner, Skidmore, Owings & and Merrill
One of the most consequential new books about the redevelopment of the World Trade Center. David Dunlap, The New York Times
Judith Dupré's thoughtful, profoundly researched book reflects the complexity of rebuilding Ground Zero. Though the project story is not yet over, her work presents a timeline in which the accumulation of creative thought is carefully analyzed, and given a life of its own. With beautiful illustrations, drawings, and technical details, she illuminates both the challenges and exhilaration of rebirth--not only of Ground Zero--but all of lower Manhattan. Daniel Libeskind, Master Planner, World Trade Center
Glowingly recounted . . . fact-filled and profusely illustrated. Sam Roberts, The New York Times
