You must be uninformed
PS by the way, I did not mean the Shard. You did
I meant parallelepiped shape skyscrapers.

Wow, is the tallest building in the second complete Europe and Europe supertall first time since the end of the tower of the union in 2009. The architect Frank Williams argues that this is the first green building in Moscow.

Why? Because it is very different?
Your avatar differs from the other ones too. Do you think it fits with the rest avatars?

I am one of those who thinks that this building is really nice. Something different. I am a bit bored with blue-green buildings Not only is the colour good but also the whole design is interesting.

Beautiful shot! The cladding will look amazing during sunrises or sunsets on a clear sky day, I can bet on that! Think it's worth spending the day there just to see it!

You don't know what you are talking about. The Shard is built on the edge of the densest urban district in Europe. It's Moscow that is building her towers in the middle of nowhere.

I think the cladding provides a very nice contrast to the rest of the development.

I wouldn't call a place within the walking distance of the white house where bloody Putin resides "the middle of nowhere".

+1

A complex with all blue and green glass could get rather bland. I like a mixture myself.

Despite its almost central location the whole territory along the RailRoad ring was sort of "nowhere" until recently. by the way, Moscow itself is the centre of nowhere for the British
