Do These Skyscrapers Look Like The Twin Towers Exploding? MVRDV Responds | Co. Design

Do These Skyscrapers Look Like The Twin Towers Exploding? MVRDV Responds | Co. Design.

Yes, it’s true that it only looks like the WTC from the ground view — but, the ground is where most people will view it from. Setting aside cultural respect (as in, “we won’t mock the destruction of Amsterdam in WW2 if you don’t mock the destruction of WTC”), hundreds of millions of people have watched the WTC towers falling and have a visceral sense of the horror of being killed in the collapse — seeing these building in Korea would, inevitably, trigger the association and result in conscious or subconscious disgust directed at anybody associated with the buildings. This would, eventually, include grandpa who lives there (see illustration). The developers would do well to trash the design and move on.
