Perhaps the most stunning aspect of this project is not only the visually intriguing design, clearly a derivative of the old reocurring motif of the axis mundi, but the height of it: 450m!!! Definitely it is reminiscent of the X-SEED 4000. I hope architects around the world will begin to realize the potential of this shape for structural integrity. The most advanced and ambitious projects in the future might, ironically, regress back to the pyramidical/conical structure

It's often amazing how correct the ancient peoples were with architecture. There was a dome in Italy that was constructed a long time ago that contained congruent and evenly-spaced holes around the perimeter of the building. Not too long ago, some workers were busy doing maintenance work on the building and filled in the holes because they assessed that they had no purpose. Consequently, and not too long afterward, the dome cracked.

Utterly unbelievable design. This will be one kind of a building. Sir Norman Foster does it again.

It has nothing to do with Putin. Putin is nobody in Moscow. He and Federal Government represent an SPb band. And they does not support anything that is going on in Moscow.

Ohta Center in SPb reflects his ambitions.
