Les Robertson RIP (Twin Towers Designer)


Recommended Posts

A giant icon in structural engineering just passed away. Les Robertson was the structural engineer for the WTC twin towers.

Sad quote:

Perhaps, had the two towers been able to survive the events of 9/11, President Bush would not have been able to project our country into war. Perhaps, the lives of countless of our military men and women would not have been lost. Perhaps countless trillions of dollars would not have been wasted on war. Just perhaps, I could have continued my passage into and through old age, comfortably, without a troubled heart."
