The tower is ok, but I don't like how it's going to fit into the emerging Moscow CBD skyline. I mean the hight is great but it's too massive considering that nearly all skyscrapers around it will be quite slim. The previous Russia Tower design by SOM was much better - that would have been the best looking skyscraper in the World.
So elegant yet powerful. Shame they killed it. :(
