Well, it is kind of hard to make the towers actually look good. All due respect, but they were pretty ugly buildings, representative of the industrial, early 70s look. And I could be completely wrong about that. I don’t know one thing about architecture.

“There‚Äôs a reason why memorials, from the simple tombstone to the largest public monuments, invariably rely on some form of abstraction (not necessarily of the modernist variety).”
I’ve never thought of this, but this is true. There is something about this literal representation that doesn’t allow for reflection.
