It looks expensive for what it will end up being. Maybe the Kremlin should bridge the gap before building strange projects.


Just my opinion though.

Looks like that Bangladesh National Monument from today's banner.

That Crystal Tower is waste of space if You ask me. It's huge base will occupy lots of surrounding space.

Anyway its quite stunning and impressive.

A lot less wasting of space than single family dwellings or low rise apartments, but no one ever gripes about those....

Looks like its in a pretty run down area.
will the whole area be re-generated?

Theres me thinking moscow had a lot of problems with money and poverty..


The name is a bit corny, could of thought of something better.
To be honest I prefer the similar projects of Kazakhstan.

Looks a bit like a Ryugyong XL. I am always sceptic when i see such huge structures.

That's strange, I don't see any clue to it being "run down". Could you be more precise as to where it shows? Also I thought Moscow was one of the richest cities in the world. Maybe my informations are flawed?

Great project and another new concept of a building design. Great Job Foster's!!!
