Here is the thing, Standard construction of buildings involves three things on most standard levels. Steel I beams, Rebar and concrete. And in most situations, The core of the building is almost entirely steel I beams with concrete support columns. There is that, And when you remove a majority of the support, The rest has to pick up that slack, and that doesnt exactly work well. You have supports to where everything is designed to carry a set amount of weight TOTAL, So the weight for all the supports and I beams now falls onto the supports, Which are not made for complete load bearing, just supporting the load to distribute it better across the floors.
TL;DR Youre a fucking idiot.

The WTC was indeed designed to take a hit from the biggest plane that existed.....at the time they were built.
Which was significantly smaller than the planes that hit the building. There isn't really a way to make a skyscraper "plane proof." Just a way to make them resistant to impacts, but that is still a preventative measure without a sure guarantee.
As for shooting down the planes, people seem to have this bizarre idea that the WTC were in the middle of an open field with nothing around for miles, as opposed to being on top of a mass of urban sprawl that extends for miles. Shoot down the plane, sure, but now it is landing on some different buildings, killing some different people. The plane doesn't evaporate when it is struck by an AA missle. It usually drops out of the sky as a mostly cohesive chunk, dealing lots of damage wherever it happens to land. So once the plane is over the city, you're just picking which building it lands on. Which is a bit like trying to decide which orphanage is going to burn down.
"But muh air traffic" Do you know how close JFK is to the city? I've been through that airport on multiple occasions. In a plane, it's about 30 seconds. If the terrorist followed the flight plan as normal until the last second, (which is extremely possible) that would give air traffic control MAYBE 1-2 minutes, or 120 seconds to figure out what is happening before the plane hits. That is insufficient time, and even if they figure it out, they can't do anything to stop it.
"But muh second plane" You really think, in the midst of the panic and horror of that moment, that everyone was operating at the level of efficiency needed to figure out that another plane is going to change course without warning at the last second and hit the other building? Man, screw those guys for not being superhuman and figuring out that it was a terrorist attack rather than a mechanical error, like it is 99% of the time. What a bunch of evil bastards. Totally in on it. Totally.
The pentagon plane left wreckage. Lots of it. The famous conspiracy photos are carefully taken so that the wreckage is not visible, but there are wide-angle shots that show wheels (missles don't have those) turbines (missles also don't have those) and sheet metal that follows airliner designs. Woops.
For the record, flight 93 that crashed in a field? Crashed straight down. Nose-first. At full speed. Other plane crashes feature attempts to land belly-down, and slowly, so that there is a chance for survival. 93 went down nose-first, so comparing that crash to am average crash is like comparing a fender-bender to driving your car into a brick wall at 60 mph.
9-11 truthers are idiots. Plane and simple.

It was designed only to take the impact, the heat from the fuel creeps the steel beams and renders those calculations useless.
