Still, the glass is copper-colored. That is something out of fashion since post Soviet era. It reminds me of those darkish days. Thus feeling dark and evil.

I don't even care for it ever being a fashion, it's just not half as appealing to the eye as light, transparent or reflective blue glass. Even the proposed white-ish or an aluminium facade would have looked way better here. Or limestone. Or bricks. Or... Whatever.

Just no copper glass anymore, ever, please!

I totally disagree with you Most people who thinks this claddingcolor is something from the 70's or the commie era has to wake up and realize that this is 2011 and a whole new world. This is not a typical boring box from the 70's, but a building with a great design and a interesting cladding if you look at it with 2011 eyes. ...as long as they don't build 1000 buildings with similar cladding in Moscow. It stands tall and unique for now. I'm sorry they cut the spire, though

Alone MCT will look better with the spire, but the whole MIBC look great if it have only one building with a spire. Only Federation Tower have right to have a spire. I hope you understand what i mean.

I like it with the spire, and without the spire is still the same to me.

PS. What does "IMO" mean?

This type of cladding works due to the fact that it is incorporated into the whole composition of buildings when completed. As a single freestanding building it might not work that well. But as a collection of buildings, it creates a composition and contrast.

Okay I understand now. It will look better this way as a whole MIBC. But MCT alone would look better with spire IMO. Despite it, I like both ways, especially the cladding.

I've heard many people hating on that cladding. It may be bold and contrasting, but it's uniqueness makes it look all the better if I do say so myself.

Seems like some people are giving this building a hard time due to the copper cladding. To each their own, I guess. I happen to like the fact that a supertall is going up without the blue/gray glass that seems so prevalent nowadays. A little variety won't hurt.

I like the design, and the cladding has grown on me. I do however think that it would indeed look better with the spire. Someone asked earlier why it was removed? No one answered. I would like to ask that question again
