Shocking 9/11 Architecture

Gawker says what we’re all thinking (aside from the architects perhaps):

“AAAAAGH! YOU HAVE ERECTED A TERRIFYING MONUMENT TO THE NIGHTMARES OF 9/11!!!” was probably not the reaction that Seoul-based Yongsan Dream Hub corporation had in mind when they unveiled their plans today for an ambitious new construction project: Two high-rises connected by a “pixelated cloud” structure that, tragically, 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…

    Never never never never never never never forget 9/11. Don’t you dare forget 9/11. But don’t commemorate it in a distasteful way either. America was attacked because they hate us for our freedom. Show some respect and don’t cheapen it or exploit it, that’s our job.

    • Anonakon

      They hate us because of our freedom? Wish i lived in the dream world you did!!!

      • Mysophobe

        I shoulda put that part in quotes. They problably hated us for something we did to them and their people, assuming there ever even was an adversarial “they” behind it to begin with.

        • Ceausescu

          Your perspective on 9/11 is most likely false.

          I suggest you start educating yourself by watching the movie “Network” ( 1976 ). It is very ahead of its time, in terms of predicting the future.

          • Mysophobe

            Seen it. Great story, but you’re going to have to enlighten me as to it’s immense educational value to me with regards to this topic. I prefer to educate myself with actual facts, concepts and observations rather than fictional tales, however profound. I should note that I meant “middle eastern outsider adversarial they”. Even so, I’m not sure I expressed a perspective that could easily be labeled as true or false, considering that almost every perspective on this subject is likely “false” as you say. I merely expressed doubt in the official story while speculating on the motivations of the SUPPOSED adversaries, should the official story be true. If you believe that this is a “false perspective” I don’t know what to tell you. You seem to be implying that the “true perspective” is belief in the official story and requisite supposed motivations?

            You come in here spewing propaganda almost daring people to argue with you, and as soon as they do, you act like a self-important intellectual. WELL, which is it!?!?

          • Mysophobe

            I guess I need to stop being facetious on the Internet. People are apparently easily offended by a group of words that aren’t arranged the way they’d prefer. I’m no intellectual, but when I dude tells me to educate myself with a movie that’s been part of the cultural lexicon for decades I do get a chuckle.

          • Mysophobe

            Let me try my first comment again in a different way that might be more easily understood:

            “America is gonna ride this 9/11 victimhood pony til the wheels fall off and the rest of the world is gonna shut up and like it, or we’re gonna start acting like victims all over again.”

            better?

        • Mysophobe

          To clear up my comment about supposed adversaries:
          The perps were either rank amateur pilots “flying erratically”, “fighting for control”, “fighting with his own craft” as bystanders and flight records have supposedly purported…or they were military trained pilots executing fighter jet maneuvers, perfectly threading 3 out of 4 needles on the same day doing 500 knots in huge clumsy aircraft. Which is it? I’m also open to a third possibility that the entire narrative is a fabrication.

    I thought the building looked interesting. Not everything is about the US and not everything is about 9/11

    • DeepCough

      Yeah, remember when they started taking the WTC out of movies before 2001? Political correctness gone fucking amok.
