Architect to Speak in DC on 9/11 World Trade Center Destruction
Professional group to present evidence to Congress

Berkeley, CA — Monday, July 13, through Friday, July 17, the nonprofit group DC911Truth will bring San Francisco Bay Area architect Richard Gage, AIA, to Washington, DC, for a series of public events and meetings with congressional representatives. Gage represents more than 700 architects and engineers who cite evidence for explosive demolition as the cause of the destruction of the three World Trade Center towers on 9/11. After careful examination of forensic data inconsistent with the official account, these professionals are calling for a new, independent investigation into the 9/11 attacks.

A practicing architect for more than 20 years, Gage is the founder of Architects & Engineers for 9/11 Truth (AE911Truth). Comprised of more than 4,500 total petition signers, members, architects, engineers, physicists and scientists, the organization contends at its website,, that the official FEMA and NIST reports fail to explain the towers’ destruction. The group’s evidence includes the admitted free-fall of Building 7, the constancy of the acceleration of the North Tower, and nanothermite residues in the WTC dust. Events

  1. Tuesday, July 14 — Thursday, July 16: AE911Truth will host exhibitor’s booth #411 displaying the controversial evidence at DesignDC, the 2009 annual convention of the Washington DC chapter of the American Institute of Architects (AIA):
    Walter Washington Convention Center
    801 Mt. Vernon Place, NW, Wash., DC 20036

    All day Thursday AE911Truth will be showing 9/11: Blueprint for Truth, its award-winning video presentation, in Room 141 of the Convention Center, starting every hour on the hour throughout the business day.

    Video of AE911Truth Conversations With Architects will be shown live on streaming video throughout the convention. Point your browser to

  2. Thursday, July 16 at 6:00 p.m. and 8:00 p.m., Richard Gage, AIA, will deliver his dynamic, live multimedia presentation 9/11: Blueprint for Truth — The Architecture of Destruction at:
    Busboys and Poets (restaurant)
    14th & V., 2021 14th St, DC
  3. Monday, July 13, and Friday, July 17, Mr. Gage and other experts will be meeting with members of Congress to impart this important information and the urgency that is required of them.

Key Evidence — WTC 7

AE911Truth points in particular to the destruction of the third skyscraper, 47-story World Trade Center 7. This building was not hit by an aircraft, yet collapsed straight down in less than seven seconds for more than 100 feet fell of free-fall — showing no resistance at all. Experts note that this undisputed fact alone rules out the official collapse explanation, which is based only on fire. (

Free-fall means that virtually all of the supporting heavy steel structure was shattered and moved out of the way by something other than the weight of the upper section. If the upper section had been crushing weakened, overloaded steel, the collapse would have proceeded at a slower pace than free-fall. This is high school physics.
NIST, the federal agency last assigned to investigate the destruction, admitted both of the key facts above. However, they did so obscurely, in two very different documents, not allowing these facts to change their conclusion that fire alone brought down a steel-framed skyscraper, for the first time in history, evenly, rapidly, and exactly in the manner of a classic controlled demolition. Such intransigence would appear, at best, to follow in the footsteps of what National Intelligence Director Michael McConnell called a failure to “connect the dots” that was responsible for allowing 9/11 to occur in the first place. Gage asks “What is keeping these dots from being connected by people who surely know high school physics?”

AE911Truth bases its conclusions solely on forensic evidence and does not engage in conspiracy theories or in assigning blame for the destruction. The group’s conclusions are shared by hundreds of scientists, senior-level military, intelligence and government officials; pilots and aviation professionals; scholars and university professors; 9/11 survivors and family members; and media professionals around the world.

Explosive Residues Found in World Trade Center Dust

A Danish chemist, AE911Truth petition signer Dr. Niels Harrit, was interviewed by Danish network television on April 6. The interview, now viewed nearly 250,000 times, discusses the advanced nanoengineered explosive residues found in the World Trade Center dust by an international team. These residues point to the use of nanothermite in the Towers’ destruction. Nanothermite was developed in the 1990s by US national laboratories and defense contractors. These troubling new findings are shown in Gage’s presentation. For the original peer-reviewed article, see

Since 2004, 911Truth.Org has educated the public about the suppressed realities of the September 11 attacks.

We worked with the 9/11 Families to pressure the Bush administration to convene an investigation into the deadliest attacks on US soil since Pearl Harbor. We attended many of the commission hearings and questioned commissioners and bird-dogged elected officials to get answers to the Unanswered Questions that remain so to this day.

We reported the contradictions, lies and omissions on the public record. 911Truth.Org staff have given hundreds of interviews on radio and mainstream network TV.

We cover a wide range of 9/11-related issues in publishing academic papers, original research, and opinion pieces.

We wish to thank our donors who have kept us on the web since 2004! We appreciate your continued support!

We continue to update the website to make the nearly 3000 articles easier to find, read and share. Thanks for visiting us!
