"Hotel was built with the Russian capital, hence the name" - Wikipedia

Naming buildings/sporting events after the main financier is just a common practice.

Well the point is to have great relations first and naming landmark buildings later ,not the other way around.

hey, there's no free lunch. Naming rights are here to stay. Get used to it. Even subway stations are getting corporate sponsors now.

You don't like calling buildings after their financial backers? You never liked the Sears Tower then, I suppose?

There is no "Las Vegas-type" building


As for the tower and the name, it is being build by a Abu Dhabi state owned company, hence the name. Nothing strange there, so get over it.

I may like the building, but not the way it got the name?

As I've said, I like the building. I disapprove the name. But even there I'm not that irritated so you can say that I've gotten over it.

Very nice design very nice to see some of the central Asian countries doing well.

i hope they stick close to the design on the fringes and actually makes boxes in an open atrium like it looks like on the rendering. will be very futuristic this way. might also be just reflections, abit hard to say really.

i actually kinda also get a portable hard drive or ,usb memory stick sensation from this design also

Hi Diplomatforall. You're doing great working in this thread. Please keep the updates up!

Would you mind re-sizing your photos a little bit so they fit on most monitors. Also, as a courtesy to Flickr I think it would be a good idea to set sharing to 'everyone', so as to make posting here easier (and legal)

How to credit Flickr

Failure to provide a link back to the photo page is the main reason why SSC was blocked on Flickr in the past.
