MVRDV apologizes for design resembling Twin Tower attacks
A blueprint of two high-rises slated to go up in Seoul, South Korea have some saying the buildings resemble New York's Twin Towers billowing smoke and fire.
Dutch architects MVRDV designed two skyscrapers that will be joined at the hip by a pixelated cluster.
The cluster of blocks will swell out from the 27th floors of the 260 and 300 meter-high luxury residential towers, collectively named The Cloud.
On December 9, MVRDV issued an apology on its Facebook page, saying they "regret deeply any connotations The Cloud project evokes regarding 9/11, it was not our intention."
