Wow, what a terrible facade... This must be the the most horrific cladding for any new tower in Europe. Frightening, looks like some 70s/80s commie stuff such as the Palace of the Republic.

The shape is great, it could have been a good looking building with a blueish glass, aluminium or even a sandstone facade.

I like the color of the glass. It seems original, and will contrast well with the rest of the city. That's my opinion

I say it looks mad at sunset.
Will be cool when it is completed.

From a distance a grey facade would look better, but at night orange cladding will be great!

I already point out that I love the color. And I'm pretty much sure that's amber and not orange lol. I just read that it's a copper color.

Don´t like the colour... It doesn´t fit there... It would look pretty good with a pale colour... Futhermore, in my opinion the cladding is not of a very good quality.


My heart beats for Paris

Yeah, there surely is a lack of pale and gray buildings in Moscow...

Nice facade but I think it looks a bit weird at night especially when the lights are on!
