Tony Kettle and his team were inspired by “Rodin’s Kiss”, representing marriage, when designing Moscow City Evolution Tower. Tony collaborated with Karen Forbes, Professor at Edinburgh College of Art in the conceptual design for the ‘wedding palace’ base and the commercial tower. Whilst forming an important civic focus, it operates on a highly personal level, as a public expression of a private vow. Its sensuous form is a critical element of the design, addressing the quality of its conceptual invention and a high level of technological engineering. The design recognises, indeed, celebrates the speed and energy of urban life in Moscow. It makes a statement of innovation amid the many historical landmarks, yet avoiding doing harm to the historic aesthetic.
