W.T.C. Designer’s Studio Endangered

yamasakiwtc W.T.C. Designers Studio EndangeredThe architecture Web log Archinect links to an article in AsianWeek.com about original World Trade Center architect Minoru Yamasaki’s endangered studio in Michigan. (Archinect’s Steven Ward notes the story is “complete with a quote by George Takei [of Star Trek fame] and a whacked-out collage of Yamasaki’s projects.”)

With the World Trade Center gone, the Romantic architect’s footprint in the U.S. now largely consists of the Century Plaza Hotel in Los Angeles and the Eastern Airlines Terminal in Boston.
