September 21, 1962 ·

Minoru Yamasaki, who designed the highly acclaimed United States Science Pavilion at the Seattle World’s Fair, has been named architect for the proposed World Trade Center in lower Manhattan.

Emery Roth & Sons of 850 Third Avenue will be associated architects on the project. Announcement of their selection was made yesterday by S. Sloan Colt, chairman of the Port of New York Authority.

The $270,000,000 center is being planned by the Port Authority on a 15-acre site bounded by West, Barclay, Church and Liberty Streets.

The Port Authority has said that the center would bring together in one location all the specialized activities and information needed for the conduct of export-import business in the city. No date has been set for completion of the center.
