Free Markets, Free People
In the world of “hard to swallow” claims, the claim that the architects of the buildings below just had “no idea” this resembled the 9/11 attack on the World Trade center is exactly that:
Said the Dutch design firm MVRD, in an English language release:
“It was not our intention to create an image resembling the attacks,” the designers insist, “nor did we see the resemblance during the design process.”
Really? I mean, by goodness, look at the design. You’d have to be an addled 5 day old badger not to see it.
I’m raising the big red BS flag here on this obviously disingenuous claim … especially after this:
The problem with this assertion – apart from its inherent implausibility – is that they have admitted the contrary in Dutch. Thus Jan Knikker of MVRDV told the Dutch newspaper Algemeen Dagblad, “I have to admit that we also thought of the 9/11 attacks.”
Of course they did, what fool wouldn’t? Yet they still thought it was a design in good taste and then lied about it when confronted.
