Proposed S. Korean Towers Resemble EXPLODING World Trade Center Towers

| December 9, 2011

A tribute to the Muslim 9/11 attackers?

The unveiling of pictures of planned luxury residential towers scheduled to be built in Seoul, South Korea, has sparked instant controversy. The reason is obvious. The towers, which include a so-called “cloud” feature connecting them around the 27th floors, clearly resemble the World Trade Towers in the process of collapsing following the 9/11 attacks.

The designers of the towers, Dutch architectural firm MVRDV, have responded to the controversy by quickly publishing an apology in English. “It was not our intention to create an image resembling the attacks,” the designers insist, “nor did we see the resemblance during the design process.”

They did not see the resemblance during the design process? The problem with this assertion – apart from its inherent implausibility – is that they have admitted the contrary in Dutch. Thus Jan Knikker of MVRDV told the Dutch newspaper Algemeen Dagblad, “I have to admit that we also thought of the 9/11 attacks.” source – Weekly Standard

    Interesting…I wonder why the South Koreans would allow this?

  2. I also thought of the 9/11 attacks but for a different reason. After having worked on the 52nd floor of a Toronto office tower which was 72 floors high, I immediately knew something was wrong. If the tower was somehow ‘disabled’ below my floor I’d never be able to get out. Another office tower sat directly across the street and I wondered why these skyscrapers couldn’t be built so that a person could move from one to the other on the higher floors. This design speaks of 9/11 for more than one reason – the middle section resembles the clouds of smoke and debris, but it is also a brilliant way to be able to move from one tower to the other, to correct a mistake that took many lives in 9/11.

  3. First off I would like to say terrific blog!

    I had a quick question in which I’d like to ask if you don’t mind.
    I was curious to know how you center yourself and clear your head
    prior to writing. I have had a hard time clearing my thoughts in getting
    my ideas out there. I do enjoy writing but it
    just seems like the first 10 to 15 minutes are lost just trying
    to figure out how to begin. Any recommendations or hints?
    Many thanks!
