Architecture gained a new significance in the eyes of the world when New York's World Trade Center was brutally attacked on September 11, 2001, as a symbol of the United States of America's freedom and commercial strength. Recognizing the public's new appreciation of the correlation of architecture and the culture that creates it, Max Protetch, a New York art gallery owner who has specialised in architectural drawings and represented some of architecture's strongest minds, launched an artistic response to the attacks that would help New Yorkers regain their footing and envision a new future for the city. By the end of September, as the debate over what would come of the devastated lower portion of Manhattan began to stir, Protetch had contacted a number of the world's top architects asking them to contribute to one of the most important and provocative architecture and design shows in recent history. The result was a unique combination of proposals from a diverse group of architects. A New World Trade Center presents the visions of the architects as they appeared in the exhibit.It will be a must-have not just for architecture enthusiasts, but for members of the general public who have become interested in one of the most important building projects in recent history.
