I'm not up to any aesthetics, but to a spatial disposal of office's function. He has disposed it in two identic tower sectors (110-storeyed), the third was twice smaller (47 storeys - on the side of north), two 9-storeyed + US Customs Office (unknown to me numer of storeys), and Port hotel (22 storeys). What logic was in it? Why two were equal? A disproportion was only too visible! This is just evident proof of imitation... To put it mildly!

R. Cohen's article (from before 12 years) speaks much about economical - political sources of investment undertaking called WTC at New York. One of propagandists' reasons - a friendship of two states - New York and New Jersey, could even fit to both towers, if they were equal states as to their meanings. I skip not very today appropriate perhaps here a hint of author that Rockefeller is about a monument of two brothers - Nelson and David; as far as I know, they were not twins!
