A blueprint of two high-rises slated to go up in Seoul, South Korea have some saying the buildings resemble New York's Twin Towers billowing smoke and fire.

Dezeen magazine reports:

Dutch architects MVRDV designed two skyscrapers that will be joined at the hip by a pixelated cluster.

The cluster of blocks will swell out from the 27th floors of the 260 and 300 meter-high luxury residential towers, collectively named The Cloud.

On December 9, MVRDV issued an apology on its Facebook page, saying they "regret deeply any connotations The Cloud project evokes regarding 9/11, it was not our intention."
