I would have died from boredoom if it was another transparent blue/green glass.
It has the same color scheme as Russian Academy of Science
And also the color scheme of traditional russian architecture:
It's a great mix of traditional and futuristic that evokes very positive associations.
No, the glass is not the same as the examples you mentioned. It is near on the colour wheel, but not the same.
Mercury City has bright Copper
Mirror finish. Your first example is
with a matt finish and the traditional Russian examples are different shades of Gold
. To many people with a very refined sense of colour/hue/tone or shade they are very different and evoke a different level of quality. Even if they are made of the finest of materials, a copper or bronze coloured covering will always look cheaper and gaudier compared to gold.
The best example of gold glass cladding is the Royal Bank Plaza in Toronto Canada. That is because there is almost 2500 ounces of pure gold used in the glazing, to give it it's colour.
