They are sisters, but not identical. Maybe from a big distance. Close, every one have it's own distinctive arhitecture. That was the point, all similar but at the same time all distincive.

Moscow State University


Ukraina Hotel


Triumph Palace


Ministry of Foreign Affairs


Kudrinskaya Building


Kotelnicheskaya Building

That is a killer shot. Holy crap the Burj got big. I honestly stopped paying attention to it and kept myself to specific construction threads. That is shocking, almost. It looks really odd, however, all around the Burj. Still, the idea is to build up and not out so Dubai does have the right idea. It'd be nice if thats how the U.S. developed its cities. Imagine dozens upon dozens of classic super talls in Chicago and NYC. We got too carried away with building suburbs. Suburbs aren't evil or anything but they cause destruction on different levels.

I love the Moscow State University building. It's my favourite of the Moscow towers.

I love the Wrigley-Intercontinental-Tribune "Trio" and may I say that the Chicago Tribune building looks especially awesome in that picture.
