Yeah it does, it's called Torre De Cristal in Madrid. If you look at it at a certain angle it does, other wise its not a "square".

and here's another one in Incheon

neither of them are really that similar to 1WTC, they just look similar from one specific angle, they are made up of triangles, and they have similar cladding.

Awesome replicas, man.
Have most of us bid goodbye to this thread? There hasn't been much activities after the topping out.

New windows have been delivered yesterday for the part above the south entrance, where two rows are still missing (and I think one column on the right and on the left).

And the temporary crane platform has been dismantled largely as well. But most progress will be in the interior from now on..
