Moscow is booming!
Apropos here is one more gigantic rendering.
Triumph palace, executed in so named stalinist style.

I usually don't like these kind of revivals,but this one is not bad in comparison with others we see in Russia.

Triumphe Place was a great success! I'm really amazed that they can still build a building this style today.

Russian skyscraper architecture is very interesting. Not really my cup of tea but unique, almost fairy-tale, like castles in the sky.

Well I like it, gigantic and all, but really interesting and good planing IMO with the waterfront.
I'm not a big fan of the TP, but I do like the 6 Stalin castles, or whatever their names are, I think they would look better if surrounded by skyscrapers like they did in Warsaw.

you are correct there. The great danger in copying old styles today is due to economics, the detail that went into old styles can not be replicated commerically today. Lack of skill and commercial realities mean that you end up with a very poor imitation with too much vital detailing left out. The result, something that may look ok from a distance but just looks terrible from closer viewing. Take these examples, from our vantage point the repetitive design is broken up with large plinths and a stepped structure, however up close the repetitve cladding is not detailed enough and appears in such huge expanses that I fear it will create a very ugly and oppresive experience. Very poor post-modern crap on a huge scale in my view. I do like the spire and the very top section on the last building, this part seems in proportion to the design and detailing, so 1% of it is good!

Awesome buildings!

I really like this neo-stalinistic architecture, and I am sure that the rest of the world will start copying this style in a few years. I like architecture where there are lots of interesting details to study, and these buildings have many of them.
