I M Pei's pyramid at the Louvre. Quite perfectly flat. There may be others, but that comes quickly to mind.

I didn't understand yours joke, but it's nothing - you're from Bat'ka & Co. land. Only there these jokes are crazy funny. Ha ha ha.

Ok, ok... This skyscraper is very bad. Why it's orange-glazed?

Simply beautiful building, but why did they choose such an ugly color for the glass? The design is very "monumental" without looking ridiculous, like some of the modern commieblocks throughout Moscow. It looks almost like a giant rough crystal.

The progress of this tower is going slowly, at this speed i think The Shard will be constructed earlier and will become the tallest in Europe .

Exactly. It's over-the-top...the gold tinted glass and white foamcore-like edge is just awful. Compared to the other buildings around it, this one is just awful, tacky...I'm fairly certain it will appeal solely to the Russian mafia. Was it really "designed" by a professional or someone with Lego blocks?

Reminds me of a giant water cooler.

I'm reading this thread for a long time, but after I've read all dissatisfactions about Mercury City Tower I decided to write my opinion. I think that the tower looks and will look very interesting and, I think, modern! I like this kind of glass.
For all who dislikes the glass and the tower I would advise to wait for the end of the construction and then finally to give your assessment of the tower.
And I want to ask: If you don't like Mercury City Tower, then what kind of skyscraper would you want to see instead of it?
I'm sorry, but I can't understand it... Peace!

I disagree with you dude, It seems to be coming along quicker than the Shard to me, I'm always impressed each time I check it out.

PS: btw, yes, I can see you .

Russian mafia? Lego blocks? Dear UrbanMyth, Blockbuster called and asked you to return the movie you live in.

My God ... I have the impression that some people are jealous of this skyscraper, or just too stupid to understand why "Mercury"City Tower has this color.
