    Sorry, i know this is a little old but I still want to hear what people think about this. So opinions???

    I don't really see the connection, I couldn't imagine why anyone would want to design a building that looks like a falling tower. So I believe the architect.

    I kinda see it, but I wouldn't think it if I hadn't been told so... People are just so paranoid these days.

    It's a cool design.

    Not sure how to say this nor without saying it harshly, but

    they seem to be throwing the feelings over reality and/or trust. :unsure:

    I think it depends which image of the buildings you see.

    Here is the other image from that source that you didn't post:

    On the one hand, the accusation that some guy was part of a project involving more money than any of us will ever see just to be a douche is hard to believe.

    On the other hand if he wanted the whole "in the clouds" thing then wouldn't it make sense to have more jutting out apartments than at that level?

    Hey look, another stupid "news" story where not a single shit was given.

    This isn't news. This isn't even worthy of highschool gossip.
    Some people got butthurt over nothing, holy crap.
    Stop the presses.

    Uh, yeah...maybe if you squint your eyes and pretend you're playing Minecraft, it looks sorta like an explosion?

    That's kind of a stretch, tbh.

    Edit: Not to mention the "explosions" on either tower (the real ones) weren't even on the same level....it isn't even physically accurate...

    If you're looking for an explosion in architecture, you're going to find an explosion, plain and simple.

    Did everyone miss this? lols



    While the day did have a number of deaths, a number of heroes also emerged. The slogan is: "Never forget..." so I don't see how this is any more offensive then the same people who post never forget 9/11 every year.

    People see what they want to see.
    They say this is cheap sensationalism?
    Hey, what about all the people making a big deal out of nothing?
    It isn't always about America.
    No offense.
