In more than 150 photographs, drawings, and plans--most never seen by the public--Judith Dupre chronicles the rise of America's most exciting and emotionally charged new skyscraper. One World Trade Center showcases the building's groundbreaking design and engineering, from the initial excavation to the final placement of the spire. Capturing the hope, resiliency, and pride of those who built it, the book is rich with in-depth explorations of the innovations, including a 360 degree view from the One World Observatory.

The nation is eagerly awaiting the public opening of One World Trade Center in 2015, and One World Trade Center will be the ultimate insider guide to the building that will transform the skyline of New York City.

Praise for Judith Dupre:
"Dupre captivates the eye, mind and imagination."" " ""The New York Times"""
Praise for "One World Trade Center "and Judith Dupre:
"Dupre captivates the eye, mind and imagination."" " ""The New York Times"""
"Judith Dupre 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"
"Judith Dupre'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"
"With superb writing and awesome photography, One World Trade Center by Judith Dupre is a masterpiece of a book in every aspect." San Francisco Book Review"
Praise for Judith Dupre:
"Dupre captivates the eye, mind and imagination." The New York Times"
"Magisterial, meticulously researched, and handsomely illustrated." O, The Oprah Magazine"
"Glowingly recounted . . . fact-filled and profusely illustrated." Sam Roberts, The New York Times"
"One of the most consequential new books about the redevelopment of the World Trade Center." David Dunlap, The New York Times"
"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"
"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"
