Architects and Engineers for 9/11 Truth” Announces Website Launch

New resource available for professionals investigating the destruction of the World Trade Center Towers

“Most professionals haven’t actually read the official reports, nor have they read the evidence for demolition… And most haven’t really looked at the evidence for demolition because it’s been smeared as a ‘conspiracy theory’…Everyone has some natural resistance to this issue. But when faced with the facts, the taboo of the subject gets lifted…”

San Francisco architect Richard Gage, AIA, founder of the group, ‘Architects & Engineers for 9/11 Truth,’ announced today the official launch of the group’s website – Gage, along with dozens of other architecture and engineering professionals, have signed onto a petition posted on the site which questions the official reports of the destruction of the World Trade Center (WTC) Twin Towers and Building 7 in New York City on 9/11/01, and calls for a new investigation. Gage, who, along with many others in his group suspects that the towers may have been destroyed with explosives rather than plane impact and fire, says he expects the website to also serve as a vehicle for ongoing research into the causes of the destruction of all 3 WTC high-rise buildings that day.

The group does not speculate as to who and why, Gage says, but instead calls for a new investigation by Congress with subpoena power. He believes a new investigation is the only hope of “fully answering these questions and bringing those responsible to justice.”

Gage also says he chose the Memorial Day date to announce the website with a purpose. “As we remember our fallen heroes on this Memorial Day,” he says, “it is fitting that 47 architecture and engineering professionals have already risen up to honor them by calling upon Congress to re-investigate the events of 9/11 – an event used to justify 2 additional wars that have fallen over three thousand more!”

Gage’s own research into the destruction of the buildings is what led him to conclude that the WTC Twin Towers and WTC Building 7 — a 47 story high-rise destroyed at 5:20 pm on 9/11– appear to have been brought down by controlled demolition with explosives. He credits a number of scientists and engineers who have investigated the evidence in detail, but so far, his group is the first to attempt to organize professionals in the building trades who can speak to specifics in the official reports.

In recent months, Gage has been invited to make over a dozen presentations to audiences in the Bay Area and to universities, including San Diego, Sonoma, Chico, and upcoming at University of Winnipeg in Manitoba, Canada. He has even given presentations to the office of Congresswoman Ellen Tauscher, and to over 50 architects in the San Francisco Bay Area. But perhaps most surprising is the interest he has been receiving from members of the local Chapters of the national body overseeing the architecture profession in the U.S., the American Institute of Architects (AIA).

Scott Page, Berkeley architectural consultant and member, has praised Richard Gage’s courage to address such a controversial issue publicly and to professional groups such as the AIA, which have never contested the official reports by NIST. “It’s not an easy thing to bring such a hot potato into an office of conservative building professionals or to your state representative,” he said, “but that’s exactly what Richard has done.”

Page says that architects and engineers have generally avoided the 9/11 topic for a variety of reasons: “Most professionals haven’t actually read the official reports, nor have they read the evidence for demolition.” But Page says this isn’t surprising. “No one wants to read hundreds of pages of government documents on their weekends. And most haven’t really looked at the evidence for demolition because it’s been smeared as a ‘conspiracy theory.’

And many, Page says, have never seen the videos of the collapse of WTC Building 7, which he stresses will often convince people on the spot that something is wrong. “That building falls so fast and with such precision, that it literally shocks people when they see it. But most professionals never have, much less even know that a third skyscraper came down that day!”

Page also says that architects and engineers, like anyone else, don’t want to delve into such a dark event in history. “Everyone has some natural resistance to this issue. But when faced with the facts that Richard Gage presents, the taboo of the subject gets lifted.”

Gage’s presentation includes several different lines of evidence for his case, from analyses of the collapse features he says are consistent with those of a demolition, to over 100 reports by first responders and the media of explosions at the scene. Gage also extensively covers the findings of chemical and physical evidence from Utah physicist Dr. Steven Jones, a physics professor formerly from Brigham Young University whose demolition hypothesis led to his appearance on MSNBC and many news articles. Jones’ continuing chemical and physical analysis of the WTC steel and dust has revealed what he claims is the signature of thermate, a high-performance incendiary cutter charge. Gage describes a key piece of evidence in support of Dr Jones’ theory — the reports by a number of individuals including the structural engineer of the WTC, and the FDNY, of molten metal “flowing like lava” in the rubble pile during the weeks following 9/11.

Gage says the new website will feature his full presentation, both as a PowerPoint and a video, along with a discussion forum, the recently leaked WTC North Tower blue prints, ongoing publication of technical articles and a broad range of multi-media offerings.

The new website is:


100 Senior Military, Intelligence, Law Enforcement, and Government Officials Question the 9/11 Commission Report

Around 130 Professors Question the 9/11 Commission Report

Over 100 9/11 Survivors and Family Members Question the 9/11 Commission Report

“When you grow up in the United States, there are some bedrock principles that require concerted effort to discard. One is the simplest: that our leaders are good and decent people whose efforts may occasionally warrant criticism but never because of malice or venality… But one grows up. … And with the lawyer’s training comes the reliance on evidence and the facts that persuade… After a lot of reading, thought, study, and commiseration, I have come to the conclusion that the attacks of 9/11 were, in their essence, an inside job perpetrated at the highest levels of the U S government.”


“The observed collapse time of WTC 7 [610 feet tall, 47 stories, and not hit by an airplane] was

6.5 seconds. That is only half a second longer than it would have taken for the top of the

building to fall to the ground in a vacuum, and half a second shorter than the falling

time of an apple when air resistance is taken into account… The great speed

of the collapse and the low value of the resistance factor

strongly suggest controlled demolition.”
