The cladding is "different" but that's as much praise that I can give this building. It already looks like an outdated attempt at being futuristic.

It brings so much freshness to skyscraper world. All the glassy boxes look alike, either boxy or curved/spiral design. I'm not saying such designs are bad but they are repetitive to the point I start puking on skylines like the U.S. cities (excluding Chicago and NY). This one, on the other hand, shines with originality of the form. Rarely you see a non-boxy tower with so many setbacks, having several zones implemented seamlessly into one structure. As for the 'outdated attempt at being futuristic', this was the purpose of the design. It kind of reminds me Ryugyong Tower because it tries to be futuristic 30 years ago yet it delivers. Colour itself is very rare, probably one of the least used colours for cladding nowadays. To me, it perfectly binds traditional Russian 'culture' with present times. Everybody has their own opinion but mine is that this should be in top 10 skyscrapers in the world right now.

This one's a beauty! I wish we could have something as handsome as this here in Halifax. Although I do think that multimedia screen up top takes away from it

It's was tallest completed for a short period, but it's never been tallest building-structure in Europe.

Still MCT is externally finished and already tallest completed building in Europe. You don't have to wait for official ceremony.

A very bold color scheme that was pulled off well.

Looks like the bottom venting row wasn't painted after all.

It looks great in those last photos
