congratulations to Russians and the people of Moscow ....

it has been in the news since last night over here in the Netherlands ... great job done, I find it far more beautiful and prettier than Shard in UK which already has lost its title being the tallest of Europe.

To all: Many skyscrapers change their clading every few years. So maybe they could pick a transparent orange.
Imho a better choice.

But in this way it looks awesome when the sun shines.

Plus, it contrasts the dull blue buildings around it, and adds colour to the regularly grey sky of Moscow. Even so, it looks great when the sky is blue. If this had blue cladding, it would not interest me so much.

I agree. With this color of cladding it stands out in a good way, I think. On earlier renders when the cladding was grey/blue it didn't seem to stand out at all, looked more like filler material.

@ Hadson

I'm hear something like this the first time otherwise the opposite.


To remind you how it looks like when the sky is blue.


It is some months ago.

It's a nice building, but it's not at all iconic, therefore it's height is irrelevant, as soon enough another tower will take its place as the tallest, and this will be forgotten. it is the way of things. An ultimately forgettable design, but again I reiterate a decent enough tower. Shame about the value engineering, looked a lot better with the spire. not totally sold on the quality of the glass either, but the colour is at least something brave/ different.
