MVRDV Apologizes for “Cloud” Skyscrapers that Resemble Exploding Twin Towers as Outrage Spreads

Last week MVRDV  unveiled plans for “The Cloud ” – two luxury condo towers in Seoul, South Korea joined by a pixelated “cloud” of protruding sections that bloom from the middle. Much to the surprise of MVRDV , the design has set off a media frenzy with hundreds of people claiming that the buildings were intentionally designed to evoke September 11  and the fall of the Twin Towers that once stood in New York City’s World Trade Center . MVRDV has released an official apology , but it will likely take much more than that for the crowds to quiet. What do you think – does the form of “The Cloud” resemble the explosion of the Twin Towers during the 9/11 attacks on New York City?
Are you offended by the similarity between MVRDV's Cloud and the exploding form of the Twin Towers?
