Richard Gage, AIA, to Lecture in Denver Colorado
Sponsored by Colorado 9/11 Visibility
In the years since 9/11/2001, millions of Americans have come to question the official narrative of the events of that day. The evidence simply doesn’t square with what we were told, and nowhere is this more plainly visible than in the manner that the World Trade Center towers “collapsed”. I hope you will join me when I come to Denver to give a live multimedia presentation on the topic of the destruction of the three World Trade Center high-rises. Bring your tough questions (there will be Q&A) and your friends—but please come and evaluate the evidence for yourself.
9-11 Blueprint for Truth – The Architecture of Destruction
Re-examining the World Trade Center Collapses

The organization Architects and Engineers for 9/11 Truth is a fast-growing collaboration of more than 670 architectural and engineering professionals who are re-examining these high-rise collapses. The last few years have witnessed the emergence of mounting scientific evidence that the collapses of the Twin Towers and WTC Building 7 were not adequately explained by the official theories outlined in the 2002 FEMA and 2005 & 2008 NIST reports. The Architects and Engineers for 9/11 Truth call for a new, fully funded, unimpeachable Congressional investigation with subpoena power.
We present the evidence on our website and in live multi-media presentations throughout the country. Most A/E’s who have seen our multimedia presentation have joined us in calling for a new investigation from Congress!
Each of the WTC Twin Towers emitted explosive sounds well before the collapses began — reported by over 100 first responders in the FDNY recorded “Oral Histories” (the release of which was resisted by the City of New York until forced by a FOIA lawsuit by the New York Times).
Numerous accounts of “flashes of light” reminiscent of demolition charges were also reported. Video footage reveals the striking symmetry, explosiveness and rapidity of the Towers’ destruction.
Their destruction differed from the “classic” controlled demolition of WTC 7 (noted below) in their extreme explosiveness.
Each rubble site contained tons of molten metal “flowing like lava” in the basements — as attested by Leslie Robertson, WTC structural engineer, and numerous other contractors and first responders.
Scientists have determined conclusively that thermate, a high-tech incendiary, was used — chemical traces of thermite were found in the steel and the dust.
Each “collapse” exhibited thick billowing pyroclastic dust clouds thatrapidly expanded to over ten times the volume of the buildings.
Each “collapse” showed squibs (explosive ejections of pulverized building materials) easily seen in all the videos.
The twin towers were supposed to have “pancaked” down, but there was no stack of floors found at the bottom — everything was blown outside the footprint of the buildings in a 1,200-foot radius — and 90,000 tons of concrete, metal decking and floor trusses were completely missing from the debris field.
Most damaging to the official story was WTC Building 7 — a 47-story high-rise not hit by an airplane and yet the third modern steel-framed skyscraper to collapse symmetrically at near free-fall speed on 9/11 (in 6.5 seconds) — in the exact manner of a controlled demolition with explosives. It collapsed into a neat, compact pile, exhibiting the classic features of controlled demolition:
* Rapid onset of collapse
* Sounds of explosions at ground floor — a full second prior to collapse
* Symmetrical collapse — through the path of greatest resistance — at near free-fall speed (i.e., the columns offered no resistance and had to have been “removed”)
* Collapse into its own footprint — with the steel skeleton broken up for shipment
* Massive volume of expanding pyroclastic-like dust clouds
* Tons of molten metal found in the basements by demolition workers
* Chemical signature of thermate (a high-tech incendiary) found in slag and dust samples
* Rapid oxidation and intergranular melting found (by FEMA) in the structural steel samples
* Expert corroboration from controlled demolition professionals
* Foreknowledge of collapse by first responders, media, NYPD, FDNY, etc.
You can review all of this evidence and much more online at AE911Truth.org.
We hope you’ll join us in Denver on September 25, 2008. For most of us, it takes great courage to even consider this evidence, and I applaud you for your willingness to keep an open mind while you evaluate it for yourself. It would be impossible for me to overstate the importance of doing so — for the sake of our democracy.

Notes from a few Architects and Engineers:
“AE911Truth exposes that a localized failure in a steel-framed building like WTC 7 cannot cause a catastrophic collapse like a house of cards at free-fall speed without a simultaneous and patterned loss of several of its columns at key locations within the building.”
– Kamal Obeid, PE, Structural Engineer
“I think we were all shocked when the buildings came down; it just didn’t seem right. Richard Gage, AIA, does an excellent job uncovering the problems with the official explanation in a scientific, non-partisan way. It’s “An Inconvenient Truth” about 9/11 that everyone should be aware of. Brace yourselves.”
– Chris Mungenast, AIA
“The presentation by AE911Truth.org brings serious doubt to the official story. It is very difficult to understand how all 3 Trade Center buildings could have come down the way they did, solely as the result of the 2 airplane impacts and resulting fires.”
– Jeffrey G. Arnold, Architect
“AE911Truth.org defies the official version of a complete structural failure of WTC Towers 1 and 2. AE911 proves that a free fall of these steel structures into their own footprint is a story without merit and a challenge to common sense.”
– Osvaldo Valdes, Architect
New York City
“WTC Building #7 was not hit by aircraft, yet it collapsed nearly at free-fall speed – similar to the towers. The small fires don’t explain this, and the two reports (FEMA & NIST) don’t address this or the molten metal found in the basement by the demolition contractors. Why not? What happened there? I have serious questions as a result of Mr. Gage’s thought-provoking presentation.”
– John Cole, Architect
Walnut Creek, CA
“I completely support AE911Truth.org. Besides the prima facie evidence which they present well, I think there is a hidden truth in the lack of changes demanded by insurance companies and building code agencies as preventative measures. If they don’t want to change policy or method as a result of the “collapses,” then there is no truth to the official story.”
