It looks like the Moscow University inspired the architects of Abraj Al-Bait

Comparing Moscow University to Al-Bait is like comparing an ancient Greek temple with a Greek-style city hall in the USA.

It is Al Bayit that looks like Moscow University, not MSU like Al Bayit.

Al Bayit looks like Las Vegas type of architecture - boring and fake.

IMO Mockba City will have the best cluster in europe in a few years,and it also will be one of the best in the world! moscow certainly is a city with a great future,and IMO one of the cities with the best modern architecture in the world
