I would give it a 10 but it's kinda creepy (the communist style with the red paint etc...). And inside it looks awful (in the pics).
I give it a 9, I love the classical touch and details (and the lighting)!

I meant the architechture was a little bit creepy not that it's creepy because it's a communist building. I apologize if I was a bit misleading.

Definitely not a skyscraper, more of a monument than anything
Great architecture and design, but again 1/10 for being a real skyscraper

10/10 for architecture
10/10 for being so friggin gaudy (not Gaudi, although ... ;-0)

1/10 for being a cheap way to say we have skyscrapers

7.5/10 overall then I guess

i had the honour of seeing this building in person a few years back - it looks damn good when viewed down the garden leading to it on a blustery, snowy, winter day.

9/10

It's undoubtedly an impressive building, but I wouldn't call it "beautiful".

It looks too much like a fortress, or some kind of prison.

8/10
