The Amazing Pre-9/11 Journeys of Architectural Photographer Tom Scott Gordon
What was the “Bridgeways Project” and why was it clandestine?
Was there a developing problem of galvanic corrosion with the aluminum cladding on the towers?
Why did this project get terminated so abruptly in one day – stunning the dozens gathered for the most cryptic meeting of their lives – attended by none other than our guest today on RichardGage911:UNLEASHED!
Why was this architectural photographer hired to study and photograph the city landscape immediately surrounding the Twin Towers more than ten years before 9/11?
Why was the tower’s architect of record, Emery Roth & Sons, re-hired 20 years after their completion, to engage in the massive project to protect the public on the plaza below the towers – and to protect from what?
Was there an even larger project underway to actually decommission the Twin Towers?
My guest is multi-decade architectural photographer Tom Scott Gordon of TS Gordon/Building Images who earned numerous AIA awards, (American Institute of Architects) on assignments for over 650 architecture and design firms.
