It's something like
"Shut up, troll"(c) RWJ

Yeah-Yeah, In Europe there are more interesting examples of architecture.
You still think that the shopping center on Manezh Sq. is good example of architecture.
So I don't think so.

Rare example of original architecture it's British Embassy once again.
And Tower 2000 is pretty good.
And Zenith Building is gotta be in textbooks of architecture.
And City of Capitals is pretty good
And Federation Tower(project, idea are good)
And dozens of buildings(nearby 30-40-maximum)

But though
So I understand most of population of Moscow(I among them), They love Moscow, but I don't wanna see lame-builded buildings, which is simply may be destroyed by their weak construction. They simply give money to their owners. And may be destroyed 20 years after their open.
Every building gotta have their own originality .

Though
Every city have their weak point, Moscow among them.

Great photos, levaniX. I particularly love photos taken when the weather outside is dark and wet. It gives a city a totally different look!

If Moscow looks Chinese, than Dnepropetrovsk looks like a real African city, OMG. Such bad infrastructure and so much dirt and neglect along with dilapidated commies. I mean, this is all in Dnepropetrovsk.

New Arbat Ave.(Unusually empty)

Arbat Sq and Boulevard Ring:

Musicians in transition:

Victory Sq., and Triumph Arch (which built due to victory in the war of 1812, was ruined in 1930s, and was built again in 1967 and moved to Victory Sq., (Initial place- Belorussian Railway St. Sq)^

The Victory Park:


People, a lot of happy faces, though on ash:

UFO(just kidding, actually it's kite):

Sweeper-Emigrant who going to eternity or something like this:

My yard, weirdly empty:


Very mysterious atmosphere, on the one hand streets are full of people, on the other hand- too empty.

and what? How does it change Moscow? Even if Dnipropetrovsk didn't exist at all Moscow would not become less Chinese
And the second point, is that Dnipropetrovsk is not a capital and even not the biggest Ukrainian city, while Moscow is a capital consuming resources from the whole huge country. So one could expect something more amazing. Unfortunately Moscow is not comparable even with Warsaw in terms of quality of modern architecture. Just admit it, because it's true. To change the situation for the better one should at first see the problem. It's a pity if you don't.
