this turned out great. the original design woulda been nice (maybe someone feels like digging it up) too. i seem to remember the smaller buildings being spheres or something...

anyway this complex looks very good - simple, modern, elegant. very glassy, classy

Oh of course. That is socialist architecture and planning policy for you. Just basing it on my perception and what I've seen a lot (China).

Every time I see a shot of Moscow I'm more and more convinced that it has built itself what can probably be considered the best up-and-coming skyline in Europe . La Defense is quite impressive too but I think that in ten or twenty years , Moscow will be the preeminent European city .

Anyway , Moscow is really looking quite impressive .

I would agree (notwithstanding that , well yeah , I guess it was the Russians who came up with the idea first) except for the lack of greenery . Moscow looks so lush even compared to southern Chinese cities .

Isn't Moscow in Russia?

OT: I don't like the design of the building. It looks like those block toys for kids that they stacked together.

It is. It's also in the part of Russia that is in Europe.

Yeah , as far as Russia is concerned , Europe ends at the Urals and Asia begins there . Other than that , it's just as much a cultural thing . Just like how Turkey would , for all practical purposes , be considered European. Same people , related language ... just happens to be across the strait and has a different religion .

Boy, those bird's eye shots gives one the impression that Moscow is an urban oasis. I can see myself spending the whole day and night by those windows.
