Let me just say that this is NOT the first time that this firm has designed something that has taken "inspiration" from the 9-11 attacks. They were doing schematic designs locally for a project named "The broken tower" that looked like a tower had split in half and fallen over. I find it disgusting that they would find this at ALL in good taste. They can deny all that they want, but this is just rude.

I live in NYC and I first saw this image in AMNY while riding the subway. It filled me with rage and disgust - the moment I saw it, I thought it looked exactly like the towers. There is nothing that I like about this.

i'm not sure i would have noticed the similarities until i saw the ground-level view. it's too bad because my first reaction was that it was a fantastically cool concept.

Carrothead, I'm right there with you. It's a very pretty design. The comments on MVRDV's facebook page are pretty interesting, too.

i'm on the fence about this one. the architect in me loves all the green space the connection makes and mvrdv in def one of my favorite firms, but it is so hauntingly like 9/11....
