Moscow contract for Edinburgh firm

Tower of two halves: artist's impression of City Palace, designed by RMJM


The architects who designed the expensive Scottish parliament building will build a lavish skyscraper in central Moscow, a city so awash with petrodollars that it should not balk at the cost.

A group of Edinburgh architects yesterday announced that the mayor of Moscow, Yuri Luzhkov, had approved their design, right, for the City Palace, a 46-storey tower shaped like a drill bit or, as the designer more flatteringly has it, "two ribbons wrapping around each other". Based in the capital's new financial district, it will stand metres away from another British-designed skyscraper, the Moscow City Tower, created by Lord Norman Foster and intended to be the tallest building in Europe.

Mr Luzhkov is encouraging extensive reconstruction across Moscow. Advocates say he is creating the richest looking city in Europe, while critics dismiss his projects as vulgar and ostentatious.

The architects, RMJM, have described the tower as "sexy" and "sensual". The firm's director and concept designer for the tower, Tony Kettle, said a register office in the base of the tower was inspiration for its design. "We wanted it to look like the marriage of two halves, with a feeling of celebration," he said. "It is a very rich and expressive building." A ballroom will rest on top of the £120m spiral, providing views of Moscow.

City Palace will be partly financed by Alexander Chigirinsky, a property tycoon, whose brother Shalva is backing the Moscow City Tower, a 118-storey building expected to cost £830m. "Ours is not going to be the tallest, but the most beautiful," Mr Kettle said.

Mr Kettle's firm designed the Scottish parliament building, which was completed in 2004 for £431m, 10 times its estimated cost. While the Chigirinsky brothers are known for their deep pockets, Mr Kettle said this project would provide value for its investors.

One thing I don't like is the gold they keep using everywhere. I think it makes it look cheaper and tackier.
The gold? Where? I don't see any gold there...

Love the Aqua building! Looks great. The others are good too! Don't like the new design for Russia Tower, the old one was better.

Don't like the tower for plot 20 at all, reminds me of this new proposal for London. I don't think it will fit into the cluster.
The Russia tower on the other hand is absolutely phenomenal

Twisted buildings are usually not very spectacular but this design is great. Any thread for this tower?
