I'm glad you're getting a kick out of it.

Very nice! The shapes were benchmarked from other skyscrapers around the world, even though, I like how they look together

I fail to see how the shape of your towers is unique.

The complex is nice and most of the towers(the ones wich are not a copy of other ones) have a pretty shape.However,they could redesign the " Borat Freedom Tower" to make the flagship building look more unique and original.

Tacky Freedom Tower rip-off!
One of those would have been ok.
But 7 of them in a row is just ridiculous.

Come on man.
Look at the base where all the towers are standing on.
They seem to connect all of the buildings, but it doesn't look integrated.
It's just not thought through.
The cladding reminds me of the background of the box of videocassettes you had in the 80's.
I'm sorry but it seems like architects in Astana just copy other design and build a cheesy clone.
