World Trade Center Made of Rusty Debris (Gone)

Field review by the editors.

Oak Ridge, Tennessee

This Twin Towers replica stands about 20 feet tall, and is made of rusted, ragged steel scraps somehow welded together in an airy lattice. It has an eerie, 1960s comic book, post-atomic holocaust look to it, which perhaps explains its location outside of The American Museum of Science and Industry, formerly known as the American Museum of Atomic Energy. "World Trade Center: Sculpture of Steel" is its official title; a gift from Limor Steel of Nashville, Tennessee.

Outside the American Museum of Science and Energy. Take the Hwy 162 exit from I-40 north into town. At the 4th traffic light (Taco Bell), turn right onto Tulane Ave. The museum is on the left.
