Green tower going up in Siberia

2 posts in this topic

This appears like a fantasy but it's apparently real.

A very tall mixed use tower going up in a remote part of Siberia. What to make of it? Why not South Bend Indiana or Manchester or Sau Paulo? In other words, we have no precedent for this type of major innovative development taking place in a remote backwater. I'd like to know more. Maybe Siberia is trying hard to attract growth. They probably also realize that striking architecture is the quickest way for a city to gain a global identity.

Several months ago I thought I was the first to come up with the concept of a very tall building, almost a city in itself, in a remote wilderness:

Maybe Norman Foster Associates has been spying on me. Actually, I predicted it was inevitable. Of course, it's easy to dream about these things.

Comments welcome.

Obviously the tower itself is just a rendering, but are any of the other parts of the pictures real? Are there houses/buildings there already? I don't know anything about Siberia, but I thought it was a desolate, deserted place.
