Mercury City Tower is SO iconic, the bold colour and strong futuristic design suits Moscow perfectly. When I think of Moscow I think of Saint Basil's Cathedral, Moscow State university, Kotelnicheskaya Embankment, and Mecury City Tower. There's nothing like it.

This tower is like something you see in the background in sci fi movies, at least in terms of shape rather than colour. I think it's in a style not comparable to much else.

The whole MIBC looks like Star Wars sometimes

Actually, this tower is the background of an action movie.

the tower might look futuristic, but more like from a cheap 80s scifi movie. it's definitely one of a kind building, but not in a positive way, imo.

I love it too, but it's kinda controversial, like this one.

Sadly, most beautiful buildings are controversial. And the Nimby Londoners mostly dislike Shard for the height.

But I still cannot find a single reason as to why people hate Mercury City (except possibly the unusual cladding)
