Ok, but they can do it better because the letters screen is black and it makes the MTower looks so poor. I really, really, really hope they can change it. But sometimes i think it will be so hard to happen...

You can see why they designed Mercury City Tower in such a bright colour

I'm so intrigued by the cladding, did they mix copper in there with it to get it that colour? And I'm still confused as to how there's no effect of the orangeness from inside when from outside it's nearly opaque looking!

Definitely not Europe's best tower. No way. Its shape is boring and its color makes me want to puke. It tries to look modern, but seems more like something from the last century. Should have never been built in my opinion

The colour and shape were chosen for a reason. And it doesn't try to look modern, it tries to connect with the Russian past with its special style seen in many modern art pieces during the times of perestroika. What other colour to fit Russia but red?

Also, boring shape? What other tower has this shape?

Хороший выбор цвета, потому что все русские церкви были почти золотыми очень хорошо

Nice choice of color because most of Russian curches are golden, very nice.

A tower like this should have a spire. Without a decent spire it looks unfinished.
