In doing some architectural research the other day I found a picture of Oscar Niemeyer's Congress Building, Brasilia, Brazil (about 1960). The angle of this particular photograph features the dome, inverted dome (bowl), and the narrow side of the two towers. I was struck by the similarity with the World Trade Center twin towers (1967).
You will get the idea from the link below. In the photo in my book the wider sides of the building are in shadow. The effect is to emphasize the verticallity of the narrow sides making the buildings look more square in plan rather than rectangular.
Has anyone else noticed the similarity?
