A perspective like no other on the planet. The lead structural engineer of the New York World Trade Center oversees the construction of the world’s tallest towers, a man haunted by their fall and the events of 9/11. The life and work of Leslie E Robertson, a legend in high-rise design and cultural centers across the globe. About innovative structural systems, steel, and wind engineering at its inception. Unique collaborations with renowned architects. A pacifist and advocate for human rights, and a powerful union with a woman who emboldened and ultimately saved him. A story about fulfillment, fragility, a fighting spirit. Told by the guru himself & those closest to him.
