Clever montage over at Foster + Partners is going to create this breathtaking, elegant building.
From Foster + Partners website:
"Today’s groundbreaking of Foster + Partners’ Russia Tower – the tallest building in Europe – has been marked at a ceremony attended by Yuri Luzhkov, the mayor of Moscow, and members of the Moscow Government. Set to be a striking new addition to the dynamic high-rise skyline of Moscow City, its unique form will be visible landmark from the heart of Moscow.
The building continues the practice’s investigation into the nature of the tower, taking structural, functional, environmental and urban logic to a new dimension. The mixed-use project incorporates apartments, hotel, office and leisure space and will have an ‘energy cycle’ that pioneers sustainable architecture and reinforces the economic and social vitality of Moscow City."
I giggled at this 3D-generated photo. They're making it look like a futuristic city. I guess it is... but really, the weather over there must be gloomy so why is it shiny? Maybe only few days out of a year... that'd wake them up whenever it happens.
oh i mean,
