Korean Developer to Keep 'Twin Towers' Design

Fuck i think it looks awesome.
What are they saying...you can't build something that has a twin because of 9/11. fuck that is dumb



Quote:
A South Korean developer said on Monday it would not alter the design of a twin-tower project despite complaints in the United States that it mimics the explosions at New York’s World Trade Center in 2001.

The towers, one with 54 floors and the other with 60, are designed by Dutch architects MVRDV and will be built at the entrance to Seoul’s redeveloped Yongsan business district by 2016.

The towers will be connected midway up by a cloud-shaped bridging section that will house amenities including sky lounges, a swimming pool and restaurants.


But families of victims of the 9/11 attacks see a marked resemblance between the project known as The Cloud and the clouds of debris that billowed from the World Trade Center after hijacked airliners ploughed into the towers.

"Allegations that it (the design) was inspired by the 9/11 attacks are groundless," said White Paik, spokesman for the Yongsan Development Corp.

"There will be no revision or change in our project,” he told AFP, adding that construction would begin in January 2013 as scheduled.

MVRDV said it "regrets deeply" any painful connotations.

"It was not our intention to create an image resembling the attacks nor did we see the resemblance during the design process," it said in a statement on its website.

"We sincerely apologise to anyone whose feelings we have hurt," it added.

Jim Riches, a retired New York deputy fire chief whose son was killed on 9/11, said he did not believe the architects.

"It looks just like the towers imploding," the New York Daily News quoted him as saying. "I think they’re trying to sensationalise it. It’s a cheap way to get publicity.”

Is this fucking real? Some bullies over there are just begging for a punch in the face.
I say we go knock down their Samsung Tower, then build one of our own that looks like the damage we do to it. See how they feel!

Re: Korean Developer to Keep 'Twin Towers' Design

That makes your original comment a little bit more acceptable. I retract some (but not all) of my "fuck you".

Not that I imagine you give a shit either way haha
