Green tower going up in Siberia


Recommended Posts

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.
