Editorial Reviews

On the tenth anniversary of 9-11, NOVA presents an epic story of engineering, innovation, and the perseverance of the human spirit. With extraordinary access granted by The Port Authority of New York and New Jersey, Engineering Ground Zero follows the five-year construction of One World Trade Center (1 WTC) and the National September 11 Memorial & Museum. NOVA captures the behind-the-scenes struggle of architects and engineers to make the buildings safe and highly secure under the pressures of a tight schedule, the demands of practical office space and efficient, "green" architecture, and the public's expectations of a fitting site for national remembrance. Featuring interviews with 1 WTC architect David Childs; Chris Ward, executive director of the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey; Mayor Michael Bloomberg, chairman of the 9-11 Memorial Foundation; and Michael Arad, the man behind the breakthrough concept for the 9-11 Memorial.

I recorded the original broadcast Nova: Rebuilding Ground Zero series, 6 one-hour episodes documenting the new tower, the Memorial, Museum, artifacts, personal accounts and reflections of 9/11 and the decade of rebuilding that has followed... in all a great and memorable series. I mistakenly thought this was the DVD equivalent, but quickly discovered that this is a single hour, mostly the highlights of that 6-part series. Much has been eliminated that needs to be viewed, my personal opinion.

It's OK, but found it superficial; I highly recommend the original Nova series if you can find it.

Another great Nova documentary.
A fascinating examination of the technology deployed to rebuild One World Trade Center.
A moving insight into the design and construction of the memorial next to it.
I was left with some optimism regarding what has been done by the people working at Ground Zero.
