Architects and Engineers for 9/11 Truth

“Something smells fishy about the official report.” . . . “It’s obviously a controlled demolition, so why did they lie about it?” — Comments from two architects who now support a new investigation of Building 7

ABX Convention’s Most Popular Booth Yields 110 New Petition Signers

Pitching it as “an opportunity to shake things up in our city,” architect Henry MacLean and 9/11 activist Chris Gruener convinced Architects & Engineers for 9/11 Truth to attend Architecture Boston Expo (ABX) last month. As an incentive, they raised the first $900 of the $2,700 booth space fee. From there, we were off to the races.

Chemical engineer Rich McCampbell, P.E., and architect Michael Blutt, AIA, and their crew quickly followed up with logistics. They amassed a total of 36 volunteers who were willing to serve at the AE911Truth booth in various time slots over a three-day period. Their goal was to educate as many architects and engineers as they could among the thousands who visited the exhibit hall of the largest building industry trade show in the Northeast, held November 17-19. The annual event is attended by 10,000-plus architects, engineers, builders, and other design professionals.

ABX first Henry MacLean AIA, answers the deeper questions raised by two fellow AIA members who wanted to understand why they didn’t know about the third worst structural failure in modern history. Note the incredibly detailed 3D printed models of the WTC site, which were created by ABX volunteer David Munson

More than 1,000 of the attendees stopped at our booth, which was without a doubt the busiest booth among the hundreds of vendors exhibiting at the event.

We repurposed much of the display system from our booth at the American Institute of Architects annual convention in Atlanta last May. There, we had devoted ourselves to the mission of highlighting the collapse of World Trade Center Building 7 (WTC 7).

It was in Atlanta, in fact, that we had discovered the secret to getting a large percentage of the name-tag-wearing passersby to stop and listen to our message. We applied the same method at the ABX:

“Hi John,” we addressed by name whoever strolled by our booth, “did you know that a third tower fell on 9/11?”

“No!” the startled architect would usually respond, stopping in his tracks. No matter what the answer, though, we would invite our visitor to “Take a look at it!” as we pointed to the video of WTC 7 on our large monitors. “What do you think is bringing down that tower? Fires? Or controlled demolition?”

“It looks like a controlled demolition,” was the reply we heard hundreds of times.

“Yes!” we’d exclaim, validating their answer. “And more than 2,000 architects and engineers agree with you!”
