Lord Foster just keeps on building.
From the London Guardian: "Moscow planners have approved Lord Foster's design for the world's biggest building - likened by critics to an alien spacecraft and a "dahlia stuck in a string bag". The British architect's £2bn "city within a city", Crystal Island, will be built on the banks of the Moscow river, with a total floor area of 2.5m square metres, making it the largest enclosed space ever to be constructed."
Lord Foster also has designed a new ecological tower in Khanty Mansyisk, Siberia and the Palace of Peace and Reconciliation in Kazakhstan. This guy is no joke in the world of architecture. On another note, does Russia need a Crystal Palace? Check out the article, this design is crazy.
