Is The Official 9/11 Account Scientifically Proven? An Architect Discuses

Share Article

Architect Richard Gage, scrutinises the official 9/11 account of how the three towers fell into their own foot-print and at almost free-fall acceleration. This phenomenon has never occurred before or since.

Richard Gage, AIA, architect for more than 23 years, uses only science to examine how the three World Trade Center skyscrapers collapsed on Sept. 11th, 2001, and whether it can be explained by plane impacts and jet fuel alone.

He will outline incomplete and contradictory reports by the official FEMA and NIST (National Institute of Standards and Technologies). 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 this structural failure 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)

The New York Times called these findings "the deepest mystery uncovered in the investigation .... the steel apparently melted away, but no fire in any of the buildings was believed to be hot enough to melt steel outright."(3)

With the 9/11 commissioners questioning their own report(4), there is a call for a new investigation by military officers, pilots, firefighters, 9/11 survivors and families.

The legacy of Sept 11th resulted in erosion of civil liberties, and controversial and costly wars with Afghanistan and Iraq, contributing to the present recession. As the 10th anniversary of 9/11 approaches, this is an opportunity to report on and discuss criticisms of the official story.

Mr Gage is a member of the American Institute of Architects. In 2006 he founded Architects & Engineers for 9/11 Truth (AE911Truth), with a membership of over 1,500 licensed engineers and architects.
