Rebuilding Confidence: The Design, Safety and Security of 1 World Trade Center
1.5 LU / 1.5 HSW
Join us for the engaging lunch discussion Rebuilding Confidence: The Design, Safety, and Security of One World Trade Center. Presenter Nicole Dosso, FAIA, of Skidmore, Owings & Merrill (SOM), will recount the design decisions made by SOM as the firm redefined safety and security measures for high-rise structures in the city following the events of Sept. 11. Specifically, she will discuss the technical site constraints associated with the 1,776-foot-tall tower, completed in 2014, and its robust security provisions. Safety measures incorporated into the project will also be highlighted, including the structure’s egress redundancy and protection of life-safety infrastructure.
Attend and you will:
Learn about the safety and security measures that Skidmore, Owings & Merrill helped to redefine in New York high-rise construction with the firm’s projects at the World Trade Center complex.
Identify One World Trade Center’s numerous technical site constraints around which the architects had to navigate.
Compare the egress strategies of One World Trade Center with those of its predecessor, the original twin towers of the World Trade Center.
