Sorry, I fail to see how the Russia Tower looks anything like the Shard London Bridge?

Let's compare them shall we?



Everything about the buildings are different except the shape which is similar, which is the slanted edges of the building.

It is like saying the Sears Tower is a copy of the Empire State Building because it is a series of boxes.

But RT differs from LBT much more than LBT from TAP...


@BMXican
look at small white houses on left with light in window. they are. the big town on right is strabag's town - developer of northern tower.

For how much I stare at the pictures I cannot find any resemblance except for the basic shape, and even in it there are major differences, since the Shard's base is a square, whereas the Russia Tower has three lobes.
