Multi-functional complex on Moslmovskaya Street
Sergey Skuratov Architects
ArchiCAD 17’s ‘signature building’ is located very close to the wide, open spaces of Poklonnaya Gora and the valleyof the Setun River. Its design was dictated by the existing urban terrain and originally consisted of two, slightly
diering yet symmetrical pairs of buildings. The rst part of this pair was conceived and constructed as an urbanaccent to be seen from well-known observation points throughout Moscow. The location of the building complexoccupies the only vacant area within city blocks. The skyscraper is a dening structure in the neighborhood, owingto the fact that this area is famous for the rich greenery of the Moscow State University campus and the ‘Moslm’movie studios.

The complex
The multi-functional complex’s main features are a pair of 213-meter high and 130-meter high buildings,connected by a third structure comprised of two parallel, eight story buildings, forming an atrium between them.The complex includes underground parking, retail, entertainment, sports, commercial, and residential areas. Theconnecting lower-story buildings and the main tower are lifted 17 meters and supported by seemingly chaotic,tilted columns made of black concrete. Separation of the private and public areas was a key factor in the designof the complex, to ensure the privacy and independence of the various stakeholders.
The design
To emphasize the size of the main tower, eight-shade, colored ‘alpolic’ panels were used, which change frombright white at the top to dark shades of limestone at the bottom. The Japanese ‘alpolic’ panels are the nishingelements of a suspended façade system assembled in modules, oering an impressive design. The rhombus-shaped oor plan of each oor is turned slightly counter-clockwise at each level from top to bottom, giving themain tower a ‘twisted’ shape, while an obtuse angle on the rst oor morphs into a sharp one at the very top, andvice versa. The panel-shaped high rise building is very sculptural as well, because its facades are constructed of three dierent types of glass, while the basket-like vertical stripes break the monotony.
