The Evolution Tower (Russian: Эволюция) is a skyscraper on plot 2 and 3 as part of the Moscow International Business Center in Moscow, Russia.

Design[edit]

The tower was designed by RMJM along with Scottish artist Karen Forbes.[3] It looks like two ribbons twisting around each other. Each is twisted by 3° in relation to the preceding one, totaling 135°.[2] The design of the tower was inspired by pictures of the Cathedral of St. Vasily the Blesse and Tatlin's tower.[4]

Construction of the tower began in 2011, and was completed in 2014.
