Looks good on close ups but not so good at a distance. That dark cladding up in the tower is an LED display though

Still some left.

I guess, even if they leave the horrid vent cladding as it is, you could say that, combined with the extremely masculine form of the building, it characterizes the strong Russian man pressing onwards, with battle scars from his past, and by his side is the feminine-looking Evolution Tower that completes Russia as a whole.

Yea, if the mechanical floors on the top is supposed to have that cladding it looks horrible. It doesn't matter if it will look cool with the LED displays during night, when it looks bad at daytime.

And I don't like the cladding overall. It reminds me of something from the 70s or 80s. Looks like the same cladding as Palast der Republik.

Good. Nice to see appreciation for the past. Also, it's a horrible shame they tore down the Palast.

Orange glass (suits the name) but white bordering & black at top really spoils everything. Rather than white border, they could have taken steel color while higher elevation could have been orange but in different shade, this I feel would have looked much better.

BTW, which the adjoining building in blue elevation ? It looks as if few blocks have been kept on one another. Any pics of that building ?

that is a nice perspective, almost like if a billboard version has been placed between the banners.
