The cladding is already visible at the distance.

Today I visited Moscow City and found that cladding was progressing. They were setting cladding at the west side, opposite Federation Tower.

380 meters of golden glass... I have mixed feelings about that. Especially when you calculate that, of all the Moscow's skyscrapers in that cluster, hardly everyone is blue.

I agree with you. I quite like this black glass building in my hometown. It certainly would be no worse than the gold.

I agree. Golden glass would be more suitable for a filler not for a supertall.

I know what mixed feelings mean. You like the tower. And you don't like it is not in your city.

In Moscow city supertalls become fillers

That is the waviest glass I've seen since the 80's. Someone please send the company making this glass some pictures of the Shard.

Black glass is great, but with black glass you must have lighter colored
environment for contrast, which can be clearly seen on your photo. In Moscow we have darker colored towers around, gray sky most of the year + black asphalt, trees and soil during late winter. Black tower in such surronuding will look depressing.




Glass is indeed more wavy than i would like, but i guess it has something to do with sunlight distortion. If i am correct, the less wavy the glass, the more concetrated sun rays will be reflected from it, right?

I guess you can solve it by making glass transparent, but it will water down architectural idea of this building quite a bit.

The Shard? That building with glass that looks absolutely gorgeous up close, but turns into amorphous gray shape as soon as you look at it from the distance?



Why would we want that, when supertall is mostly supposed to be viewed from the distance?

Shard has a transparent cladding. But sometimes it may look like a mirror with a right lighting.

It looks fine to me in that one. It may be slightly darker, but it still looks good. It's just a reflection of the sky. To me the glass does look good from a distance. It will be much easier to gauge once it's all on, but I think it's coming along well. I don't see why anyone would say they wouldn't want the glass. Perhaps jealousy, as Brad mentioned earlier in relation to your own U/C supertall?

Missed by a mile. There are many skyscrapers I admire from Moscow, from the Seven sisters to the Naberezhnaya Tower, but this isn't. And I fear it'd spoil an otherwise classy and harmonious cluster.

It is better to post Russian jokes in the Russian section,
