The redevelopment of the World Trade Center site is one of the most visible construction programs in North America. The multi-billion dollar redevelopment program comprises more than two dozen individual projects with a diverse range of structures, including multi-storey commercial and retail space, the Lower Manhattan Transit Hub, a museum and memorial dedicated to the victims of 9/11, as well as streets and infrastructure modifications.
Our firm has played a major role in this project since its inception. Following the competition award for the redevelopment of the site, we provided design support to Studio Daniel Libeskind, completing a series of building massing and feasibility studies, as well as test fits for the various development parcels of the overall site. In 2005, Silverstein engaged AAI Architects, P.C. as the Architect of Record for Towers 2, 3 and 4 designed by Foster + Partners, Rogers Stirk Harbour & Partners, and Maki and Associates, respectively. OUr firm was also the Associate Architect for the Memorial Museum Pavilion.
