In fact, copper-ish cladding is a pretty bold choice for a building at a far North latitude. Normally you only see lustrous metallic claddings in sunnier locations.
gotta love it. it is so 70's

This is currently my favorite building under construction ANYWHERE. (at least with Vashnya Federatsiya basically stalled >_<) with all the other building in MIBC having roughly the same color skins, this one will really stand out, and probably be one of the defining structures in the skyline.

Hey Russia

Hey Russia, 1983 called. They want their tower design back. Seriously though, poor design, unfortunate color choice... I just don't see anything special. And as for the whole complex, it lacks congruity and it does not feel organic at all.

Sure it may be a little 80's but I can't help but love the design. Wouldn't look out of place in any futuristic skyline.

I don't think Russia ever left the 80's . . . . I really like the tower though, and the complex.
