In my thought, I think MCT looks wayyy... better than the Shard.
(I think you know why)

The copper color is different. I kinda like it, but it reminds me of the Palast der Republik.

So its not because your Russian then? You are just well informed.

What part of the Shard do you dislike the most? The shape or the people surrounding it?

I agree that the Mercury City Tower looks better than most of the skyscrapers because it uses colors not commonly seen on other buildings. The copper-tinted windows also give a unique reflection of the surroundings.
It's a shame it will be obscured by other towers though because it could be a real highlight with that look.
If I ever visit Moscow (it's not that far) this will be first tower I want to see.

You are right, the copper colour does distinct it not only from other MIBC towers but skyscrapers around the world. But it's not only the colour. If you look at the floor plans and general project of this building, you'll notice this is actually 4 buildings in one - each section serves different purposes.

Wtf dude, why even make such questions? "so its not because your Russian", "What part of the Shard do you dislike the most? The shape or the people surrounding it"....are you some kind of internet racist or what?

Im not even Russian i am frome Sweden, and i say what i think about d buildings. Its not that i dislike the shard in any way, but compared to MT it looks so boring. At least MT got a intressting shape and color to it. Shard looks like.

If you put it on its side it could look like a gun from the future, need a trigger after the first step back, that’s just the child in me speaking.

I love how the white bits are turning out, makes it look very clean somehow and brings out the detail of the edges, lovely touch.

Several things actually. The color is so much more interesting
than light blue (tell me if you've ever seen a copper colored
building before?),
and the shape, The Shard is probably called a cone, triangle
or whatever... but MCT has a shape to it actually, I don't
have anything against the Shard and because the Shard is
being built in such an area where not to many highrises are
it should look good. But in my way the prefer MCT over Shard.

Both are unique and they occupy the 2 and the 3 place among the u/c super talls in Europe

Shard can only be compared with the MCT.
But there is also the FT.

I like it, Comparing to the Shard is another thing, they are 2 different styles, I could see if someone need a large amount of office space in Las Vegas they might build something like this, especially with all the bargain real estate there now would be a good time to move offices there, Trump Las Vegas uses similar glass.
