NOVA: Building on Ground Zero Series

Lectures curated around NOVA: Building on Ground Zero and the anniversary of the 9/11 tragedy. Following up on its documentary, "Why The Towers Fell," NOVA probes the conclusions of the official engineering investigation into the World Trade Center's collapse on 9/11, with updated analysis of the devastating attack and how subsequent knowledge gained will shape skyscrapers of the future. Yet, is it practical or even possible to construct invincible buildings? This film features candid interviews with leading building and safety experts, investigators, architects and engineers — including Leslie Robertson, lead structural engineer of the original World Trade Center and Shanghai's new World Financial Center, evacuation specialist Jake Pauls and more.
