What i find interesting is the fact that here we have a building or two that are shaped like the swastika.
We all have our opinions on why they "could have " been built that way, ie for extra size to maximise the square footage of each building, blah blah blah,
Unless there is a regulation within that area to limit the number of stories a building can go up surely, (i know here in the UK) that the majority of the financial outlay would come from the "groundwork" ie the footings, pipework etc.
And it dosent matter what country you are from the financial cost of construction is uppermost.
So why would a company go to added cost to get a bit of extra floor space when they can just go upwards?...It dosent make sense to me?
We have had two posters (or one that has posted twice) state that in their "QUALIFIED" opinion the original drawings would have to have been passed by many people and from every angle, so why was this note picked up at one of these veiwings?
IMO whoever owns and or commisioned this building to be built KNEW exactly what they were asking for!!

The lines connecting a swastika are STRAIGHT lines. These buildings aren't lined up like that. They look similar, but it isn't accurate to say that they ARE swastikas.
That being said, if it is really bothering you, it wouldn't take much digging to find out who the architect/firm was that designed the buildings and research their background and/or simply ask them about the coincidence.
I personally feel the two designs are too different to mean anything. I mean, if you are going to design a building like a swastika, wouldn't you just make it look EXACTLY like a swastika?
