the designs are all spectacular, there is no doubt about it.

clearly some of the designs are derivatives of the architect's other designs. i find the OMA proposal having some strains of museum plaza, guangzhou twin tower proposal, cctv... i find the herzog de meuron scheme derived from the roche tower in basel... of course each has its own merits for such designs and knowing these firms they really do outstanding projects!

as for fuksas his tower could be anywhere else as well as RMJM... i do not find anything groundbreaking nor relative to its site.. for all you know RMJM scheme could just be planted in dubai.

public voting doesnt do justice and merit. it is not clearly known to all public how the design works. they just base their choices on eye candy.

personally i feel that if the site is too near unesco heritage areas it is not a good idea to build a supertall... perhaps this supertall should be farther away.. and establish its site's identity as another focus on the urban scale... not be implanted in a site or vicinity with such a rich heritage n history

Given the height and location of this building it should be at least a new landmark. So either Liebeskind or Herzog & DeMeuron.

I would love the STUDIO DANIEL LIBESKIND LLC designs to be built but not there. Therefore, I voted for the London one.

Strange design as for me. Also it doesn't suit the location at all as it will be surrounded by ugly grey commiblocks. I voted for London one design.

the RMJM LONDON LIMITED design looks like a better version of the proposed london bridge tower in london, england.

I prefer the libeskind (very unique) or the fuksas (futuristic) design.

I like Libeskind best, it is imaginative and would be a great landmark. But I am not sure about the site. It would be interesting to see renderings of new skylines from several places of historical center.

But where is the voting? Do I miss it?

Considering your blurb up the top, maybe none... But in my opinion aesthetically I think the Herzog and the Studio Daniel ones are both incredible looking!! Abstract art meets architecture! its awesome

STUDIO DANIEL LIBESKIND

without a doubt. Amazing design!

...though there is something about the O.M.A design which intrigues me...i think it's the tetris tribute.

Herzog & De Mouron & Liebeskind's are about 2 I fancy most.

Uhm, NONE. St. Petersburg is not about supertalls, especially so close to the historical center. But if it's just unavoidable, then the proposal by the Atelier Jean Nouvel, if the cladding is made right, and if it's not too tall, could be made not to interfere too much with the style of downtown Piter.

I know that. But the Libeskind Building looks like an monument, so I get my idea.
I would say, no one of that buildings should be built there, it's disturbing the historical center at all.

am I the only one who likes the OMA proposal? It would go great with the constructivist heritage on russian art. Too bad there's not enough built construictivism in st. petersbourg.
All the other projects are quite bland.
Daniel Libeskind as usual horrid and tacky, Nouvel is ridiculous and excesive and fuksas and rmjm are very generic. Maybe H&dM, but it's just another twisting tower.
