Earlier this month, the Mobile, Alabama, chapter of the American Institute of Architects hosted AE911Truth’s one-hour continuing education course, The Third Tower: Solving the Collapse of World Trade Center Building 7, which 38 AIA members attended.

AE911Truth founder and CEO Richard Gage, AIA, presented the information-packed course on WTC 7’s troubling collapse after chapter members wrapped up the business portion of their monthly meeting, held on Thursday, January 19, at the famous Oyster House in nearby Spanish Fort.
While barely-visible alligators lurked below the water’s surface just outside the restaurant, any “biting” skeptics inside were less apparent. Perhaps that’s because Gage presented only the facts about this 47-story high-rise, which fell symmetrically at free-fall acceleration in the exact manner of a classic controlled demolition on the afternoon on 9/11.
Gage began with an overview of Building 7 and then proceeded to list the observable elements of its collapse. The architects in the audience learned about the strategies employed in high-rise steel-frame design — strategies that have rendered skyscrapers immune from destruction by fire.
They also learned the series of alleged failures in the collapse initiation theory advanced by the National Institute of Standards and Technology — and why more than 2,750 architects and engineers agree that NIST’s assumptions and conclusions are invalid.
Then they learned the 10 standard features of controlled demolition, all of which are exhibited in the destruction of WTC 7.
When Gage asked for a show of hands after his presentation, the architects who indicated that a new investigation was needed far outnumbered those who didn’t.
