Richard Gage, AIA, architect for more than 23 years, uses only scientific and forensic principles to inform the the three World Trade Center skyscrapers could not have collapsed on September 11th 2001, by plane impacts and jet fuel alone. Richard Gage will be doing a presentation In London. He will be speaking at the Royal Institute of British Architects, 66 Portland Place, London W1, (tubes Grt Portland St / Regents Pk) on Monday 20 June 7pm.
He will explain how the official FEMA and NIST (National Institute of Standards and Technologies) reports provide incomplete and contradictory accounts of the towers' destruction. Attention will be given to World Trade Center 7, a 47-storey building which was not hit by an aircraft, yet also collapsed that day at near free-fall acceleration.(1) Never before or since has any sort of collapse happened to a skyscraper due solely to fire.
Neither have fires in buildings ever turned solid steel girders into “Swiss cheese”; shocking two Materials Science professors who expected to see distortion and bending but not holes.(2)
