    Artists Concept

    By JOHN ROSENTHAL
    My report last Friday on the planned South Korean towers that resemble the World Trade Center enveloped in an explosive “cloud” on 9/11 provoked an angry message from a spokesperson for MVRDV, the Dutch architectural firm that designed the towers. In my article, I quoted MVRDV spokesman Jan Knikker, who told the Dutch newspaper Algemeen Dagblad, “I have to admit that we also thought of the 9/11 attacks.” The admission directly contradicts the “apology” posted in English on the MVRDV website, which, among other things, claimed that the designers did not “see the resemblance during the design process.”
