Wondering what the latest architecture being built in the new Russia is like? One of the major trendsetters that led to today's architectural modernism, Russia is having a real spurt of building. The construction above is example of a proposed hotel in New Holland, St Petersburg. The hotel features a large courtyard with a waterway, once used for ship building. The central building is a raised glass promenade elevated above the court. Within the glazing sits a 700-seat concert hall. Ironically, and somewhat regrettably, this new Russian building has actually been designed by an American architect, Eric Owen Moss.
