Although there's a big difference in architecture, the Tallest Block in Dubai and the Business Center in Moscow have a lot of basic similarities, IMO. Both blocks stand out in the rest of the skyline and have numerous supertalls dwarfing other supertalls. There's also a twisted tower both in Moscow and Dubai to the right of the skyline (at least from the perspective below) Does anybody agree?

The Moscow cluster is of far greater quality than the mess in Dubai. Theyre really not even in the same league.

Regardless, I recognize the similar theme that he is comparing in both clusters. I have actually thought the same thing. Of course, the cladding and crown styles are very different between the different complexes, but there are some similarities of layout.

I wouldn't agree. Besides, the better quality and look of Moscow, most towers in Dubai are appartement and hotel towers, while IBC is a buissness district (of course with also apartements and hotels).
Also in Dubai the towers are mostly among a street, I wouldn't call it a cluster.
And Moscow has many highrises and skyscraper all over the city (tv-tower, seven sisters, appartement buildings).

In my opinion, the are totaly different.

The density is quite different, but the style of the buildings couldn't be more different. I like both clusters a lot

I would rather say that this cluster is just different and not comparable to other average post modern towers. The architecture - whether you like it or not - is totally unique. That splits opinions up a lot causing everybody to either hate it or love it, but if you would go around in the street and show people a picture of Moscow's Business Center in a foreign country like Germany, not even 1/10 would recognize the city. However, if you would show a picture of Dubai's Tallest Block to the same people, a lot of them would guess right because of the skyline's uniqueness.
Of course, I don't like every single tower (also not in Moscow or other cities), but there are also a lot of beautiful buildings coming up like Damac Residence or Marina 106. (additional to the already existing great skyscrapers)

I definitely prefer Dubai over Moscow - I actually like postmodern architecture, and I love these tacky blocks in Dubai Marina. Moscow IBC may be impressive but I don't really "feel" it. Too much bland blue glass as for me, I don't like the shapes too, like I think the Federation Tower looks "fat". But that's just my opinion.
