RMJM has been given the go-ahead for this landmark 46-storey tower in Moscow.
The Stirling-Prize-winning architect has teamed up with Scottish artist Karen Forbes to produce the 'sexy and organic' building.
The tower will sit next to a Norman Foster-designed skyscraper, unveiled by the AJ in March (AJ 16.03.06), which is intended to be the highest in Europe.
RMJM's 'City Palace' tower will provide 85,000m 2
of retail and leisure facilities, and the same amount of offices when built.
The building will also include a register office. The architect claimed this inspired the building's 'conceptual form'.
RMJM managing director Tony Kettle said: 'This makes both the personal and financial
investment worthwhile and expands RMJM's international presence into Eastern Europe.' by Rob Sharp
