I would say it definitely doesn't look like asian, because it doesn't have the excessive elements and shapes and geometric expressiveness. It's definitely Russian, boxy in a good way, not as boring as european skyscrapers (which they call a good taste), I would say it really reminds America, but then again America and Russia are very similar, whatsoever they would say to deny that. I would say America set the visual principles of this kind architecture, and Russia contributed to that with soviet constructivism.

Before they place the cladding, the floor must be snow free.

It definitely looks American or European (you know, good taste). It's stylish and classy. No point in talking about, whether it looks like something from asia or the werstern world - Nearly all the worlds skyscrapers and supertalls are designed by American and European architects anyways.

And by the way...Russia is Europe, I should know as a Russian

It is not green enough to be green.

They've learnt from the Mercury City Tower topic that about half of this forum don't like gold. And there is already too much grayish-bluish buildings there. They have no choice.

That's true, actually I like the gold/copper color of the MCT, and yes, another blue glass tower would be boring, but this one could be brown or red or best of all, totally black.

black skyscrapers are ugly. it looks fine as it is, but maybe another red skyscraper would fit.

IMO black usually looks nice on skyscrapers, but green can also look nice, but here it's just a bit grey. But maybe I should wait until they installed the full cladding and it is shining in the sun.

Considering the IBC cluster as a whole we should remind that cancelled 1000-ft-high Moscow City Hall was planned in red and supertall in plot 16a that is u/c now will be black.
So, your voice was already counted.
