That's pure madness. A 450-meter high multipurpose "oasis" on its own island in the Middle of Moscow? Seems like a fantasy desig and idea. That height is something unbelievable. Let's see what happens, but if this gets build, I don't know what to say, honestly.

Exactly. The surrounding landscape of this tower made me think of the Azadi Moment in Tehran.

I wonder what this will look like when it's covered with snow and the temperature is close to -20 celsius.

World’s largest building



Foster + Partners’ Crystal Island scheme in Moscow has been given preliminary planning permission, paving the way for construction of the “world’s largest single building”.

Enclosed within a “vast mega structure” covering a floor area of 2.5 million m2 – the project’s scale is enormous. At 450 m the project will also be one of the tallest structures enclosing the largest volume, on the planet.

Located on the Nagatino Peninsula, just 7.5 km from the Kremlin, it will provide “stunning” panoramic views over Moscow. A vast mixed-use project it has been conceived as a self-contained city within a city.

Amenities will include museums, theatres and cinemas, a school, 3000 hotel rooms and 900 serviced apartments, offices and shops making it a “major new destination” for Moscow.

Surrounded by a public parks, which will provide a range of year round activities, including cross country skiing and ice-skating in the winter. The triangulated steel mega frame, extending flush against the sloping facetted glazed outer skin, creates a series winter-gardens that form a “breathable” second layer and thermal buffer for the main building, shielding the interior spaces from Moscow’s extreme summer and winter climates.

A vertical louvre system sheaths the internal facades to ensure privacy for the individual apartments.

Energy management will play a big role in the running of the building, with additional strategies to include on-site renewable and low-carbon energy generation. Enclosure panels will be slotted into the structural framing to allow daylight to penetrate deep into the heart of the building. These can be controlled to modify the internal environment – closed in winter for extra warmth and opened in summer to allow natural ventilation.

Commenting on the project Norman Foster said, “Crystal Island is one of the world’s most ambitious building projects. It is the largest single building in the world, creating a year-round destination for Moscow and a sustainable, dynamic new urban quarter. It is a paradigm of compact, mixed-use, sustainable city planning, with an innovative energy strategy and ‘smart’ skin which buffers against climate extremes.”
