I think these renderings of a potential 'Orthodox center' in Russia are very cool
The 'center' includes offices, event centers, as well as a temple itself within the structure.
Here's a link with more information and renderings:

The only issue I had was that the building was not visibly a place of worship. The dome and cross seemed obscured by the flaring ends of the building.

So wait, is there a place of worship inside or not?

Yeah, but look at the actual icons and their placement.

And there are no deacon doors.

And the space behind it does not seem like there is an altar behind at all.

Slow down lol
These are just artistic renderings/mock ups done by an architect to illustrate the space itself, not what will actually fill it  Grin
Of course once it is built, an entire church area will be properly (read: in an Orthodox manner) be laid out for worship.

And yes, the place for worship in that specific rendering is envisioned to be situated under the gold dome you can see in the first rendering

This is the center being built in Paris, France.  It has been discussed in other places on this forum.

Whew. And there I thought there would be two of these monstrosities being built.
