The Rossiya Tower building continues the practice’s investigation into the nature of the tower, taking structural, functional, environmental and urban logic to a new dimension. This mixed-use Russian skyscraper project incorporates apartments, hotel, office and leisure space and will have an ‘energy cycle’ that pioneers sustainable architecture and reinforces the economic and social vitality of Moscow City.
