Kazan is a true meeting point for many cultures.  Here East meets West, Christian meets Muslim, Tatar and Bulgar come together with Russian and European. The new tower draws heavily on this duality in its basic form. The building meets the ground with a sloping podium which creates with its reachable and landscaped roof a public plaza for the city. On environmental level, the design is responding to the different environmental elements to accomplish the most efficient and sustainable building possible.
