The WTC towers were not the first buildings designed by Minoru Yamasaki , that got demolished on LIVE TV !!!
Main article: List of works by Minoru Yamasaki
His first internationally recognized design, the Pacific Science Center with its iconic arches, was constructed by the City of Seattle for the 1962 World's Fair.[3] His first significant project was the Pruitt–Igoe housing project in St. Louis, Missouri, 1955. Despite his love of Japanese traditional design, this was a stark, modernist concrete structure. The housing project experienced so many problems that it was demolished in 1972, less than twenty years after its completion. Its destruction is considered by some to be the beginning of postmodern architecture.[1]
He also designed several "sleek" international airport buildings and was responsible for the innovative design of the 1,360 foot (415 m) towers of the World Trade Center, for which design began in 1965, and construction in 1966. The towers were finished within six years, in 1972. Many of his buildings feature superficial details inspired by the pointed arches of Gothic architecture, and make use of extremely narrow vertical windows. This narrow-windowed style arose from his own personal fear of heights.[11]
It was in 1978 that Yamasaki also designed the Federal Reserve Bank tower in Richmond, Virginia. The work was designed in almost the same way as the World Trade Center complex, with its narrow windowing, and now stands at 394 feet.
Yamasaki was an original member of the Pennsylvania Avenue Commission, which was tasked with restoring the grand avenue in Washington, D.C., but resigned after disagreements and disillusionment with the design by committee approach.[12]
After teaming up with Emery Roth and Sons on the design of the World Trade Center, they teamed up again on other projects including new defense buildings at Bolling Air Force Base in Washington, D.C.[13]
Notably, Yamasaki designed the Temple Beth El Congregation Synagogue located outside Detroit in Bloomfield Hills, MI. He also designed a number of buildings at Carleton College in Northfield, Minnesota.

Martino-Taylor had to file hundreds of Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) requests to get a hold of the once-classified documents confirming the spraying program.

Her research determined that the greatest concentration of spraying was focused on the Pruitt-Igoe housing complex, which is located northwest of downtown St. Louis in the Carr Square neighborhood.

This complex, which was destroyed in 1972, housed some 10,000 people with low incomes, an estimated 70 percent of which were children under the age of 12.

“This was a violation of all medical ethics, all international codes, and the military’s own policy at that time,” Martino-Taylor said.


The earlier evidence emerged in the 1990s when then-Congressman Richard Gephardt called on the Army to open their records and given an explanation for their testing in St. Louis.

Explanations for the failure of Pruitt–Igoe are complex. It is often presented as an architectural failure;[21] other critics cite social factors including economic decline of St. Louis, white flight into suburbs, lack of tenants who were employed, and politicized local opposition to government housing projects as factors playing a role in the project's decline. Pruitt–Igoe has become a frequently used textbook case in architecture, sociology and politics, "a truism of the environment and behavior literature",.[22]
The Pruitt–Igoe housing project was one of the first demolitions of modernist architecture; postmodern architectural historian Charles Jencks called its destruction "the day Modern architecture died."[14][23] Because it was designed by a leading architect and won a "building of the year" award (though no professional awards), its failure is often seen as a direct indictment of the society-changing aspirations of the International School. Jencks used Pruitt–Igoe as an example of modernists' intentions running contrary to real-world social development,[24] though others argue that location, population density, cost constraints, and even specific number of floors were imposed by the federal and state authorities and therefore cannot be attributed entirely to architectural factors.

I wonder if it's just a Coincedence that my father and his brothers and sisters were living in the Pruitt-Igoe housing projects durring the 50s & 60s when this was taking place? Most of my aunts and auncles , along with my grandmother eventually moved out to San Fransisco in the late 60s but my dad was the only one who did not. He stayed in St.louis and retired as a criminal investigator for the st.louis city juvinile courts.

Great White Flight = New Town , St.charles Missouri

I always knew this place was strange but now I'm completely speechless , it's gonna take me awhile to explain this and I'm not sure where to even begin so if anyone else wants to g for it , go for it ! I had no idea that the set of the movie Truman Show was shot in a real neighborhood! I also had no idea that the same corporation behind that neighborhood in the movie designed New Town in Missery , it make sense though , too much sense, the whole "city" is like a Hollywood movie set.

And so New Town, Missouri, was born. New Town lies thirty miles northwest of downtown St. Louis in a previously undeveloped floodplain. The town was designed by the same masterminds who brought us the world’s first New Urbanism development, Seaside, Florida (setting for the film The Truman Show, which is set in a town that is in reality the set of a reality television show). Envisioned as a viable alternative to urban decline and soulless sprawl, New Urbanism has been lauded by those on the Left and the Right.
