This one is definitely my favorite of the NWTC towers, primarily because I had created a design with a similar crown for the site. The corner that is tallest is the same as my design. Perhaps Sir Foster saw it, and something about it inspired him. That's okay because his Hearst Building obviously inspired my Crystal Tower concept. Regardless of that, he has designed a beautiful masterpiece that is going to look fantastic next to 1WTC in the NYC skyline.

I designed 1 WTC and the Empire State building, but my ideas were stolen as well.

On the internet you never know who you're talking to so Gendo could indeed be the designer of one of the 2WTC variants. When dealing with people on the internet you always have to remember what Nihilanth said in Half-Life: "The truth, you can never know the truth!"

I've just had a thought, if viewing this development from the back 1WTC and 2WTC look slightly like twins from a difference? From the other side (the side of the memorial) it looks like two twins one cut off to represent a pointer to a important site.

This sounds like utter stupidity but I couldn't think of any other way to explain it. Please do tell me if I have lost my mind!

Are you the one who created that Zazzle poster of it before Foster was chosen to be the architect?

That's OK. Since I wanted the Twins rebuilt badly I too would love to think of 1WTC and 2WTC as twins, though 2WTC would have to be at least 415 meters to the roof for that to happen
