16 Acres Film Screening
AIA CES: 1.5 LU
When: 6:00 PM - 8:00 PM TUESDAY, ARCHTOBER 21
Where: At The Center
The rebuilding of ground zero is one of the most architecturally, politically, and emotionally complex urban renewal projects in American history. From the beginning, the effort has been fraught with controversy, delays, and politics. The struggle has encompassed more than a decade, 19 government agencies, a dozen projects, and over $20 billion. 16 Acres is the dramatic inside story of the monumental collision of interests at the site in the decade after 9/11. On the eve of the opening of 1 World Trade Center, AIA New York is pleased to present a special screening of this critically acclaimed documentary, which also highlights the architectural and political struggles behind how the iconic new tower got built.
Following the event there will be a moderated discussion with key participants in the past, present, and future of the World Trade Center site.
