Video: RMJM's Gazprom Tower for St Petersburg

New footage of RMJM’s controversial design for Russian gas giant Gazprom’s headquarters in St Petersburg

The proposed 394m-tall skyscraper has faced severe criticism from local residents. In September 2009, protesters clashed with police and Gazprom security guards during a public hearing over the plans, and in January 2008 two activists were arrested after 300 protesters started a rally on the site earmarked for the tower.

Meanwhile, the United Nations’ heritage body UNESCO has threatened to remove the city from the world heritage list if the project goes ahead.
