Moscow-On Drugs?

While some have expressed the idea that this building belongs in a Sci-Fi flick, I happen to be of the opinion that this design looks like something from a drug trip. Those odd stripes, coiling sheet things that culminate in spire-like features and strange bulges are reminiscent of trippy effects that were displayed during a History Channel show about the history of hippies/drugs I saw recently. Right now, these renders are too outlandish for my taste, however, it is true, as someone pointed out, that there is a significant difference between renders and a real building; in short, I am hopeful, and positive about the future of this structure.

As someone said earlier, there is a slight hint of tradition with those stripes, alluding to the colourful domes of St. Basil's. I think they should have used the stripes more sparingly though.

Looks to me like the design plays off that Red Square building, especially the dome on the far left.

I think the design is good for Moscow. Wouldn't fit in any other city.

Hahaha, they can't be serious.
The Russians are making a caricature out of themselves.
That design is so 70's-style futuristic it makes Starwars seem like a western.

maybe the design of this tower is inspired by cartoons
no offence, but russians cannot be serious with this project! i ve seen some great towers planned for Moscow, but this one is really naive.

ha ha ha ..
I think design is absolute crap! Stylistically insolvent! Looks like something made either by 5 year old or by senile 95 year old. (I think the second is the actual case - some old fart who didn't have chance to realize himself in USSR in 70s decided to push for last chance…)
Funny, though, how foreigners tend to like it while Russians resent it. May be you, lads will take it off our hands? Pretty pleeeeeease with a cherry on top....
