Dutch Architects Spark Outrage with Design Resembling Twin Towers

Facebook.com
The design of a residential high-rise in South Korea is stirring an uproar across America. The Dutch architecture firm MVRDV calls the building’s design ‘The Cloud’, however it bears a striking resemblance to the World Trade Center during its collapse on 9-11. In ‘The Cloud’ design, the two buildings are connected at the 27th floor, and oddly look like the debris that exploded during the fall of the towers.

The well-known design firm recently issued an apology on its Facebook page saying, “MVRDV regrets deeply any connotations the cloud project evokes regarding 9-11. It was not our intention.” But the blogosphere is not buying it. One blogger even said, “I’m not really sure how the eerie similarities weren’t spotted before the design was approved.” People also attacked the firm on Facebook by calling them ‘clueless.’
