I have always looked upon mostly concrete buildings with some fascination. Some are ugly as ****, Most are ugly as ****! Fascinating none the less.
This type of architecture is known as Brutalist or Brutalism after the French word for Concrete.
Around here I would point to the Gateway postal facility. The New York court comes to mind in the U.S. 1575158428926.png

they're ok..they can still have fires in them, people can still die, or leap outta windows. people can still jump off the roofs..

and with all that concrete, the Mob can have many yards to place the bodies, and that's all i got for now.

See the link I posted above. Minnesota just had a fire that killed 5 on the 27th
Its Concrete reinforced by thick Steel Beems..

Nevermind....

Yeah because steel beams burn quite well. All you need is jet fuel and a lot of wind. 😎
Youd still need the HEAT...

This aint "Re-Bar" either ...Solid Beams

Im sorry Jet Fuel doesnt burn "Hot" enough to Melt that

Perhaps they HIT the right way to comprise Strucral Integrity....

Thats the Only Way

You can melt steel with a wood fire. Just fan it to oxygenate it.

Steel beams don't have to melt in order to lose their strength though. Just get them glowing.

2 planes, 2 towers. Not a 1/4 mile around either. Just a couple of them that were right friggin next to the spot where a couple of billion ton skyscrapers slammed into the ground at terminal velocity, shaking the bedrock and nearby foundations.

Elementary physics dude. It helps to understand it. 🙄

It's amazing what you can do with a couple of planes when you throw in a fukkton of explosives and a controlled implosion to go along with them.

many things still burn in a high rise, like the wooden floors, or the computers, and associated wires, and the filing cabinets full of papers, or the carpeting, the draperies, or the furniture.
