Awesome!. I think is sort of retro, isn't it? At a first glance, it remembers me '70s arquitecture. Anyway, I love cold designs and it has a little charming from those days when the comunist rules Russia.

This thing looks like a Tomb. I wonder what the apartments will look like. If anyhting like the outside then it really sucks.

I would have to say this is the best design that I have seen for Russia in a very, very long time.

I think these shapes look pretty good in their own right and would complement a skyline well. A powerful, modern city must structures like these. Now if you put these in Lincoln, Nebraska - I'd "what the..." Also, if they tore down some beatiful old churches or gothic structures, then that would be a shame, but if it's just new development - why not?

I think Moscow will enjoy having the structures and they will be a great addition.

Mass Human Storage Device really sounds weird. And yeah, those buildings look giant PS2 consoles. Futuristic buildings often look good, but those are looking ugly.
I dont like this project, even those buildings are tall.

Very interesting... but controversial. It would be terrible if not top quality cladding used.
