Gawker went on to add that the project “calls to mind the kinds of images you don't really want to call to mind when looking at a new set of twin towers.”

The towers are part of a bigger project, called the Yongsan Dream Hub, whose designer is Daniel Libeskind -- the master plan architect for reconstruction at New York's Ground Zero.

Anyone who looks at that monstrosity and sees “a dreamy cloud formation inspired by a gaze up at the sky” needs to lighten up on the recreational drugs a little bit.

This architect is involved with rebuilding the World Trade Center and he claims the comparison to 9/11 never crossed his mind? Really? Seriously?

How stupid does he think we are?

SKorea really should reconsider which architects it hires. Clearly this architect is lacking in tact.

They think they’ll never get invaded?

Then let them really RELY on that belief.

Easy for them to take security matters so lightly when their is GUARANTEED for them (while we’re going BANKRUPT)....

Why aren’t they using a US Citizen to reconstruct Ground Zero?

What is wrong with a US architect? Calling Ayn Rand...

Cool design, what’s the big deal?

What an enticement for North Korea or another group of raghead highjackers to take them down! For an architectural firm to even SUGGEST such a design demonstrates stupidity or arrogance gone to seed!

This doesn’t remind me of the Twin Towers... ok, maybe in a small way. It certainly doesn’t offend me other than just being ugly. I think we need to take a collective breath here and realize that it isn’t the intent of the architect to evoke a comparison to 9-11 WTC. That interpretation is only in the eyes of the observer. I don’t see this as an attempt to offend 9-11 survivors and the families of the fallen. That’s not the aim of this project. I think that all the hub-bub is much ado about nothing.
