skibinskipedia:


The uniqueness of the WTC is quantitative. The structure itself (unlike the structures of towers like Lever House, with structural central cores, cantilevered floors and curtain walls) is a perimeter-bearing wall as if in masonry: a wall of interlocking steel elements overlapping to form a stable structure (each element, two or three storeys in height, weighs twenty-two tons). The tower is rigid like a giant empty jar and can withstand the force of a tornado having winds of over two hundred km/h with no noticeable sway.

From Domus 524 / July 1973.

Viewed up close, they are separate. For the street-level observer—the on-site observer—the pseudo-Gothic motif with columns that begin to “branch off” on the eighth floor dominates; while the extraordinary “duration” of the over one-hundred storeys, viewed in perspective from below, with the blankness of their surface and lack of scale elements, is foreshortened, seeming smaller. That’s the punishment.
