here is the article, no mention of a direct hit. I am also pretty sure there is no clause in the NYC building codes that states a structure must withstand a collision with a Boeing 767 at a few hundred miles an hour.

The mood was frantic and somber today at the
Rochester Hills architectural firm that designed the
World Trade Center buildings that collapsed in what
appears to be a terrorist attack.

The towers that reshaped New York's skyline were
designed by Minoru Yamasaki, a Troy-based
architect who died in 1986. He was known for a
passion for softening and humanizing the glass-house
style of international architecture.

Officials at Minoru Yamasaki Associates said they
were working with the FBI after the attack. A
spokeswoman from the firm said a statement would
be released within hours.

Employees were engaged in a discussion about
terrorism and the World Trade Center, surrounded
by drawings of the famous building. The 110-story
building, which covers five acres, was completed in
1976 and cost $350 million.

Yamasaki's works in southeast Michigan include
Wayne State University's McGregor Memorial
Conference Center, the Reynolds Aluminum
building in Southfield, Temple Beth El in Birmingham
and the 30-story Michigan Consolidated Gas Co.
building at Woodward and Jefferson in downtown

The Seattle native moved to Detroit from New
York in 1945 to become chief designer for the
architectural firm Smith, Hinchman and Grylls
Associates Inc. A few years later he established
Minoru Yamasaki Associates, which made a name
for itself designing buildings worldwide.
