The «Evolution» Tower of the Moscow International Business Center (MIBC) also known as «Moscow City» is one of the brightest samples of landmark architecture in the Russian capital. This skyscraper is unique thanks to the balancing adjustment of its reinforced concrete framing, as it presupposes significant displacement of huge masses. Each of the tower’s 54 floors is rotated three degrees relative to the underlying one, and in total the tower swirls around its axis by 135 degrees. The spiral-like shape of the «Evolution» tower reminds of the DNA molecule.
