“Some (ninjas) just need to be called out”.

That’s the only thing AMNP reader Joshua had to add to this submission of Ninja Arithmetic.

  1. Hmm, well, from what I see it appears that you understand very little about the massing of either project because they are fundamentally different. The Correos tower is composed of uniform square floor plates with a uniform shift on a 45, only the grouping of floors appears to change. The SANAA museum is composed of a variety of unique floor plates stacked to create setbacks and cantilevers. In a particular view, the massing might look similar, but there is not much similarity.
    Now I’ll take that glass of water………

  3. So…both of these comments are by the same person? Or two people sharing a computer? I [literally] know where you are, my ninjas…

    Anyways – tru tru, your right. BUT, I would say this: Humor. At first glance they are amusingly similar, and Ninja Arithmetic is about being lighthearted, people!
