The form, reminiscent of the twisting domes of St Basils on Red Square, is made of two metaphorical parts – male and female 

The Mayor of Moscow, Mr Yuri Luzhkov, has given his seal of approval to a 46-storey tower, designed by British architects RMJM. The development is the latest addition to ‘Moscow-City’, a major initiative by the Russian capital to create a central business district on a former industrial zone, three miles from the Kremlin. The sensuous, organic form of the building, which was designed by RMJM in collaboration with Scottish artist Karen Forbes, mixes passion and drama with a conventional square footprint ideal for offices and other commercial uses. For client City Palace LLC, a subsidiary of CSC INTECO and S&T Equity (Overseas) Ltd, it is the perfect mix of form and function. Dubbed the ‘City Palace’ tower, the twisting building will provide approximately 85,000m2 of retail and leisure facilities and 85,000m2 of offices and public functions including a registry office.
