Description Change this

The SEV Building, also known under the name COMECON, opens to the Moscow-River and is oriented with its main façade on Kutuzovsky Prospect over the bridge, on the other side of the river.
This building’s unusually dynamic form is made up of two softly bent wings connected by elevators’ hallways. This simple solution presents a very effective and convincing form – one of the most expressive buildings in Moscow which is perceived very differently from all sides and changes its appearance from every point. The building is 105m hight with 31 number of floors.
The SEV building is now the Government administration building.
