Six World Trade Center was the U.S. Customs House: a 537,693-square-foot (49,953-m²), 8-story building in Lower Manhattan, New York City, part of the World Trade Center. Construction finished in 1975. It was also the building in the World Trade Center that had the least number of floors. From the Austin J. Tobin Plaza level, on which the main structure was built, it had a height of 92 ft (28 m) but was 105 ft (32 m) above actual ground level. It was destroyed on September 11, 2001, from the collapse of 1 World Trade Center.
Debris from the North Tower fell on and around 6 WTC, digging a deep crater into the building's basement, setting it alight. The building's ruins were demolished to make way for reconstruction. AMEC Construction handled the demolition, in which the building was weakened and then pulled down with cables. The new One World Trade Center will stand at the site where 6 World Trade Center once stood. There is no clearly defined 6 World Trade Center in the new World Trade Center master plan, although a proposed performing arts center designed by Frank Gehry could be named 6 World Trade Center in the future.

An eerie thought....
When you map it...Bldg 6 is directly between tower one and Bldg 7
maybe they actually planned to lay Tower 1 down straight towards bldg7 and it didnt quite go off....
This would have surely muddled the wreckages of the buildings into very hard to investigate mess....
Bldg 6 would have to go down because of collateral damge caused by the tower falling over it and taking down bldg 7 as it fell...???
If you check the second link, youll be at the start of the photo analysis.....
follow the reasoning through it and youll get the picture......
Building 6 was also blown up!
Perhaps it was intended to go down like B#7 but the charges failed to detonate completely die to falling debris from next door, but it clearly shows the upward force of the B#6 destruction....exactly opposite the expected direction.!!!

I see you fixed the OP, one problem though, u linked the wrong link, it goes to the picture after the one of building 6 (its currently linked to a picture of Building 7) .
I haven't heard any theories on building 6, i suppose the question is, what was in building 6 that was worth "Ensuring" it got destroyed during the event at the cost of alot of money, time and possible questions.edit on 28/3/12 by WiseThinker because: (no reason given)
