The Evolution Tower (Russian: Эволюция) is a skyscraper on plots 2 and 3 as part of the Moscow International Business Center in Moscow, Russia. In 2016 Transneft bought the Evolution Tower for $1 Billion.
The tower was designed by RMJM along with Scottish artist Karen Forbes. It looks like two ribbons twisting around each other. Each is twisted by 3° in relation to the preceding one, totalling 135°. The design of the tower was inspired by pictures of the Cathedral of St. Vasily the Blessed, French sculptor Auguste Rodin's The Kiss and Tatlin's Tower.
Construction of the tower began in 2011, and was completed in late 2014.
Evolution Tower was nominated as a finalist for 'Best Tall Building in Europe' by the Council on Tall Buildings and Urban Habitat (CTBUH). A member of the CTBUH jury responsible for selecting the finalists, Anthony Wood was quoted as saying: "The world has seen an increasing number of twisting towers in the last decade or so, but Evolution Tower takes the record for the most extreme twist."
Evolution Tower is the second place runner-up in Emporis Skyscraper Award 2015. It was recognized by the award jury for its expressive design. Each floor twists three degrees in relation to one below it. The tower has a rotation from the base to the top by more than 150 degrees. The extravagant design is inspired by St. Basil’s Cathedral in Moscow and Tatlin's Tower.
