Summary "One World Trade Center, an enormous skyscraper in New York City, was built in the wake of terrorist attacks that destroyed the original Twin Towers of the World Trade Center. Engineering One World Trade Center looks at how architects designed the building, how the skyscraper incorporates many new safety features, and how workers built the tower in the middle of a bustling city. Easy-to-read text, vivid images, and helpful back matter give readers a clear look at this subject. Features include a table of contents, infographics, a glossary, additional resources, and an index. Aligned to Common Core Standards and correlated to state standards."--Publisher's website.
