Designed by RMJM in partnership with Scottish artist Karen Forbes, the Evolution Tower in Moscow is a stunning piece of modern architecture that represents the evolution of man through its twisting DNA helix pattern, a testament to the power of human ingenuity.
The unique spiral design of the tower is a remarkable architectural accomplishment, with an overall twist of 156 degrees clockwise – one of the most extreme twists in any architectural project. Each of the tower’s 52 floors is rotated through 3 degrees, leading to its twisted corkscrew shape.
The building’s smooth glass façade is a technical achievement in itself. Guardian SunGuard HP Neutral 60/40 solar protective glass was chosen for its combination of aesthetic and performance qualities.
