Awesome shot, thank you. The bright light on Mercury City Tower's screen (that ruins the tower during the day) looks really good in my opinion. And Oko may be a simple design, but it is very classy.

In Ukrainian this word means 'eye' but it doesn't look anything like it aha. Its very squary and boxy but it looks nice nonetheless. It reminds me of the new Delta tower being built in Toronto. Oko is a great addition to the skyline.

It's very interesting. I wonder why Russians used a Ukrainian word to name their tower?

Same reason the Americans are calling a new tower with the French word 'Verre'

It's not only Ukrainian, it is ancient Slavic word.

and close to the Latin "oculus", and "oko" is strangely close to Spanish "ojo".
