If the skyline grows and the skyscrapers rise up one after another, Moscow's skyline will probably become the most beautiful one in Europe (maybe after London)...

I remember reading an article about this project in Time (...or Newsweek???) around 10 years ago. Honestly, I thought it was just a pipe dream. I'm very happy seeing it becoming reality. Congratulations to Moscow!

Few months ago I have seen tv document about communist architecture and they said that there is bad bedrock in Moscow and that was one of the reasons why Moscow does not look like New York. I'm surprised now when I see they are building such high buildings there. How did they solve the problem with bedrock?

Yes, they did solve this problem by designing the self-supporting axis of the building, so it would not be sensitive to the small oscillations of this axis (Nikitin's idea), also, the foundation is far more sophisticated (and as expensive as the building itself, I guess), such that it substitutes the bedrock itself.

Bad bedrock is not an insurmanoutable problem, but it is certainly cheaper to build on solid granite rock than on marshland permeated by indreground rivers with carbonate rock deposits here and there. These carbonate sedimantary rocks date back to times when this plain was bottom of an ocean, they are full of unpredictable treacherous cavities carved out by underground water streams.

He's just trying to be funny by quoting coth's message from December 21st, 2005, that's on the first page of this thread. Well, haters gonna hate. Projects of such scale are never completed on time.
