Project Rebirth
A site tracking the rebuilding at the World Trade Center site.
Grade Level: 3-5, 6-8, 9-12


Project Rebirth documents the day-to-day rebuilding of the World Trade Center site in New York City using time-lapse motion picture cameras. The project allows the public to view the “rebirth” in a film.
The site has a simple and clear navigation system, with a top navigation bar with drop-down menus.

The American people were dramatically affected by the events of September 11, 2001. This site’s mission is to “document the entire reconstruction of the World Trade Center site; the experiences of individuals directly affected by the events of 9/11; and to ensure that people today and in future generations can experience the rebuilding process, and learn from our nation’s ability to recover.” Six cameras were mounted around the site and every five minutes they exposed a frame of film to capture the minute-by-minute rebuilding efforts. Visitors can read all about the film, watch the trailer, and view photo galleries and maps.
