Do you think, it will help the majority to reallize that the proposed skyscraper will be built in Russia?

Better they learn the name now than latter. That city represents a lot of $$$ from that oil-rich region. We'll be hearing more of it, I believe.

In a way it reminds you of Isengard from LOTR. Same middle of nowhere setting, except this is may become a reality!

I've to admit that the city is some kind of.... strange But, nevertheless, it could participate from this project a lot! Quite much potential - Maybe we have a second Moscow there someday (in a galaxy far, far away... )?

I think the tower fits the city well when most buildings are not so tall. Fits better than the 'egg' in London.
I hope more threads showing new buildings in Russia.

KHANTY MANSIYSK, SIBERIA
RUSSIA 2007









Piercing the skyline and rising above the Russian city of Khanty Mansyisk, this mixed-use scheme will create an elegant and crystalline landmark, providing crucial new amenities for its citizens - a place for living, working and leisure, sheltered from the harsh Siberian climate. Set high on a hill, in a densely wooded area, the 280m tall tower is facetted like a cut diamond, designed to maximise daylight through the winter months, reflecting and refracting natural light to illuminate the interior spaces. The design of the tower is informed by the most stringent principles of sustainable design and will be an exemplar for future development in the region. Key to the environmental performance of the building are its south facing atria, which maximises daylight and solar gain, thus reducing the reliance on artificial lighting and heating through the cold winter months. The building will also include renewable energy sources and combined heat and power generation to maximise energy efficiency. Its delicate footprint is indicative of the environmentally sensitive design and will leave much of the site in its natural condition. The tower rises between two podium buildings which house a rich mix of residential, office, hotel and retail accommodation, so that the entire scheme will be animated day-long. At the tower’s summit, a viewing platform and restaurant will offer panoramic views over the city and its surroundings.
