    It's Russia, of course it's depressing. It's their hallmark.

    It's cartoony and some of the designs are "stupid" (tm) but as a whole it's an interesting assortment of architecture. It could have been executed a lot better, but it's pretty impressive for what it is nevertheless - the largest & tallest skyscraper super cluster in Europe.

    Reminds me of L.A.

    A cluster of tall buildings out in the middle of nowhere surrounded by sprawl.

    The biggest mistake the architects made was to design each building in a unique style. The styles clash. Other clusters around the world look a lot more organic and "proper", or in the case of a lot of Middle Eastern skyscraper clusters, they look like they all match some grand vision and design. This cluster looks really forced, but it looks cool to me nevertheless.

    I think that's somewhere in Korea, but not 100% sure

    I'd prefer a giant middle finger to the skies made out of stone, but whatever suits you.
