Russia Tower – Foster + Partners

Look what Norman Foster and Associates has designed for the skies over Moscow -- a building that at 610m with 118 floors is intended to be Europe’s tallest. 

And this, below, is its peak.  Isn’t it amazing what you can do with concrete and steel and double-glazing?



  1. Gorgeous.

    And wasn't Foster the chap behind the Milau Bridge?

  2. That's the one. Follow that 'Norman Foster' tag at the foot of this post and you'll another post on that bridge. :-)

  3. To give him his due, he was also behind the Millenium Bridge in London, also known as "the wobbly bridge".
