But I guess it's just me and the World I live in..Sorry if I offended anyone..

You wouldn't call a word like motherf*cker or any abreviation of it vulgar?? Get a grip.

You're the one who needs to get a grip. Vulgarity is nearly non-existent, invented and touted by conservatives on their high horses trying to demonize REAL people.

I didn't say Sir Foster stole anything.

Both of my designs were widely on display for years before even the first site plan was ever revealed to the public. My first design was in the very first WTC design competition.

He may have had some inspiration from my old design, or you can look at it as great minds think alike. Take your pick.

Well, nobody ever asked what I was talking about, so I'm just going to post it.

The date is before Foster was announced as the architect.

It's even cut at the same corner. That's why I assume that Foster did not design WTC 2.

Here's a scan of my original drawing that I called Liberty Tower, circa 2003. It was done sitting at a coffee shop without any visual references so some of the existing buildings aren't entirely accurate. I never did get around to making a 3D model like the first design I created that some jokingly referred to as the Tower of Sauron.

I personally don't think it's a big deal. There were literally thousands and thousands of designs submitted for ground zero.

Yes IanG, what you designed is even more similar.

Given the huge volume of WTC rebuild designs that have been created over the past decade, it would be nearly impossible for these architects to not design something that had some design features in common with some of our amateur designs.

It's an unfinished major right now since I couldn't actually pursue it at the university I was at. They didn't have an architecture program.
