I know about a pink clad building. It isn't a supertall, but you can imagine how it clashes with the city!

Sometimes, national pride can cloud your vision Igor. Orange cladding isn't a tasteful idea, anywhere.

I know that. I was trying to point out that certain colors stand out a little TOO much.

Orange and pink to name two.

When Duma building is complete and some others in IBC, Mercury Tower will barely stick out in Moscow's skyline, the whole IBC will for sure.

I just hope the cladding on the tower will look better in reality than in the visualization images I've seen so far.

Are there any more renders that show the completed building with the 'copper' cladding? This one does not do justice to the real world color and quality.

It doesn't look that bad with all those dark shadows on the glass.

New Record!!!

4150 m3/month concrete (in October). This is the new record since the beginning, neglecting the foundation

It looks great in that video. More golden than copper or orange.

Reality is all that really counts though....

Thanks for the update. I noticed things seemed to be going even faster.

Cladding in that vid reminds me of the Royal Bank Plaza in Toronto...
