If that's the impression you got from seeing this City looking like a Western European City then It is a good thing for Moscow because most of the Western European Cities are very Nice , Modern and clean they also have beautiful mixture of classic and modern architectures just like Moscow , I really like what I see in those pictures , no more holding back they are going full steam ahead with many stunning projects

I'm a little lost....is this the building we're looking at? Plus it seems as if they've decided to build this on top of an older building and kinda preserve it. I like the design by the way.

I have some problems with that word "clean", it makes me think to the lack of character and authenticity most western European cities suffer from already.

I think if you remove ads and ortodox churchs you can't say if a city is Russian or Western European.

What about commieblocks and stalinist buildings? Moscow is full of them, while cities in Western Europe are not.

your question has been addressed by the people above , thanks to them ,however , to say to remove all the Orthodox churchs is not right and It won't happen because those are Russian Charcter and authenticity ,but what they should do as soon as possible is to remove all the cable , that is so distracting and obstruct the view of the city in general

Well i don't mean real remove :P instead, if you take a photo of a place where you can't see any orthodox church or any add where you can read Russian you can't say if it's Moscow or Madrid.

Can you tell me what of this Photos is Moscow?

Thanks, yet I'm still confused. Which tower are we looking at for the International Business Center?


Edit:

Plus for some weird reason I thought this was the design we were looking at. Maybe that's why I'm confused.

This thread is for all the projects in IBC. Check out the first page.

It should probably be moved to General Urban Developments.

Oh I see now. Yeah, threads here usually focus on one building at a time. I was bashing my head wondering which one was called the International Business Center.

...If so, Soviet times granted for the least peculiarity of Moscow with respect to western Europe. In fact, they: 1 - razed the churches (see the Cathedral of Christ the Saviour), something really... ehm... despicable. And 2 - made sure billboards were non-existent (ok, except for huge, but less widespread, propaganda ones). And the quiz about commieblocks was way too easy, the Muscovite ones are the tallest and those with the most greenery around them. If you are really an expert you can tell the type of building is also from Russia-USSR, usually these are standard projects.
Ok, enough with this BS. Back to topic
