lol Chad. That doesn't even make sense.

Great looking towers. So one is named "Moscow", the other "St Petersburg"?" Mmmmmokayyy.

It will be interesting to see how they are clad, including the dome. I hope they will look very high-tech.

The most enigmatically conceived business District that lies truest to a city's form.

You know i thought Chad's comment was very ironic cos when i saw the design for the business centre i thought immediately of Polyecran - a multimedia installation by Josef Svoboda in 1967:



It was made of what Josef called magic lanterns, individual multimedia boxes that moved and projected tectonic imagery of "the creation of the world" as a moving sea of images.

So yap this design for the Business Centre is very nicely wired like the way Josef Svoboda composed Polyecran.

And the design just strikes me as being so futuristic and totalitarian that it absorbs Moscow's legacy like a sponge. It is so moscow, and so light years ahead of the world. It could be precisely what moscow needs to reclaim its cityscape significance.

why is moscow taller than st petersburg hahaha. anyway its interesting cos russia's legacy is anchored on two cities, not one perennial capital. so, naming these two towers st petersburg and the other moscow is like acknowledging the two dynasties of russia in the skyline.

I remember this, I thought it got cancelled :P
well I don't see anything that bad with the towers, except that they might not look that good because of their height, a 150m height might have been better, otherwise they will strike the skyline with their... 'uniqueness'

this is one of the weirdest projects i've ever seen
despite the design it looks fantastic
the mixture of these white and blue stripes makes it look even more fascinating

i'm sure they'll turn out to be great

I like these very very much. These towers look Sci-Fi to me, quite heavy and serious, almost like something from Star Wars. Weird to imagine that such thingies will exist in reality.

The renderings do look pretty ugly but we'll see how the towers turn out, hopefully they'll look much better. The models look hella tight.
