This picture of the Cruas Nuclear Power Station in France is very evocative. While pure white fumes go up in to the atmosphere, art and nuclear energy happen to combine wonderfully. In Hipcescu, this is something we have always known.

Come and discover the magic.

On the sunny shores of the Caspian, only a four hour flight away from Western Europe, the City of a Thousand Suns awaits you. Hipcescu, a thriving 21st century metropolis, home to the world’s highest building, the iconic Hipcescu Tower (850 m). Visible from every angle of the city, it is a monumental tribute to our Secretary General, V. Hipcescu. And while a highly efficient state-security apparatus ensures your safety at all times, you will thoroughly enjoy our eco-friendly beaches, exciting nightlife, tax-free shopping, reliable nuclear energy sources and excellent real estate investment opportunities. Hipcescu. Come and discover the magic.

The brilliant idea to construct a building in the shape of an H is the irrefutable intellectual property of V. Hipcescu. But because he is a man of transcendent altruism and generosity, he will not sue the Lisbon based architecture firm Gonçalo Byrne Arquitectos for plagiarism.

Besides the fact that Hipcescu Tower (850m, 200 stories) dwarfs the so-called Estoril Sol Residence (15 stories), the resemblance between the two buildings is striking.

Take a look at more pictures of the Estoril Sol Residence and see for yourself.
