Giants: Twin Towers and the Twentieth Century

January 1, 2006 – December 31, 2007

This exhibit commemorated the original World Trade Center, viewing its creation in the context of the technological ambitions of the 1960s and the hundred-year evolution of New York’s skyline. The exhibition featured architectural and engineering models, construction photographs and films, drawings and other documents addressing the planning and design on the complex. The multimedia installation included video and audio clips, as well as interactive touch-screens that allowed visitors to view hundreds of construction photographs in the Museum’s collection and to see and hear interviews of key figures in the Trade Center’s design and development.
