Moscow’s skyline is going for a sea change with the oriental lotus all set to flower at the center of Moscow’s new business complex, named the Metropolia. Nekken Sekkei, a firm from Japan is developing the Metropolia that will become a city within a city in the next seven to eight years. Towers will be arranged around a 364-meter tall central tower like the petals of a lotus flower. The top of the central tower will be visible from all the major roads of Moscow. The design of the towers will be simple yet complex. The towers will be elliptical in shape with sloping roofs all tilting towards a single core point. The glass curtain wall facades of the towers will be simple without much ornamentation. With the curved surfaces of the towers being positioned at different angles to each other, the ornamentation of the towers will become natural with the sun moving across the sky embellishing the towers with natural shadows and lightings. Spread across 21 hectares of land, Metropolia will have office space, luxury apartments, three-star and four-star hotels, underground parking space accommodating 15,000 cars, entertainment space, shopping space as well as green space.
