How come the taller OKO tower seems to be leaning? Like in these recent photos from the Russian thread:




Is it simply an illusion caused by the odd tapering? Mind you that it's not only from this angle, but from others as well. If you look at group shots and compare the vertical sides of the different towers with a ruler, OKO really does appear to lean from quite a few angles. Together with its aspect ratio (thin and tall) it scares me a bit, illusion or not.

It's not an illusion. It is leaning. You can see that on the shorter tower one side is tapered towards the roof. It's the other way around on the tall one.

Pay attention to the number of windows per floor.

Thank you. So more clever architecture than I was aware of then, apparently. Hadn't noticed such details.

WOW. This tower looks so tall since the last time I checked because I was never really fond of these towers until now. I guess that's because most of huge renders were black and white. Anyway, I never noticed it has such a great design. Reminds me a lot of the Bank of America Tower.

I think the last Die Hard movie had some scenes in the Moscow IBC

Of course they make Russians the bad guys. Typical Hollywood.
