It certainly is mine though. I'll be paying closer attention to this thread. It requires constant supervision.

mm, it is not Soviet, because the Soviet Union did not build skyscrapers...(okaaay, Seven Sisters, but for some reason I do not consider them to skyscrapers. I do not see any hint of Soviet architecture in this interesting building. Yes, not everyone will like it, but a measure, it makes an impression.

I think you'll find that the Colour is meant to reflect Mercury - thus it's name. Also, the towers colour was designed to be Mercury as a sign of Russia's Soviet past, which is a massive part of Russian history. So to a certain degree the above fello is correct.

I completely disagree with him to say that it doesn't look good... it looks fantastic. A good design that could probably only work in Moscow. It brings life to the Cluster along with the Evolution Tower.

To solely describe the Mercury Tower as 'Soviet' though is not accurate.... when a building is described as 'Soviet' I think of the 7 sisters or Commi-Block towers.

Without going into a political battle but that's because a lot of it was absolutely flattened during the War...

They're getting there. Just give Warsaw some time.

But for argument's sake let's look at the present... take into regard Warsaw's history and how it has taken an absolute battering physically and economically - it's skyline is an absolute success story and deserves Credit regardless of opinion.

Show me the city where all parts are perfect. You showed the ugly one and you judged the whole city. I won't post here the nice areas, it's not that thread - but there's plenty of them on skyscrapercity.
