about

  • The first ever guide to architecture of post-modernist Russia with descriptions of almost 100 buildings spanning 3 decades
 Moscow: A Guide to Soviet Modernist Architecture 1955 -1991 provides descriptions of almost 100 buildings from the most underrated period of Soviet architecture.
This is the first guide to bring together the architecture made during the three decades between Khrushchev and Gorbachev, from the naive modernism of the "thaw" of the late 1950s through postmodernism.
Buildings include the Palace of Youth, the Rossiya cinema, the Pioneer Palace, the Ostankino TV Tower, the TASS headquarters, the "golden brains" of the Academy of Sciences and less well-known structures such as the House of New Life and the Lenin Komsomol Automobile Plant Museum.
 
The authors situate Moscow's post-war architecture within the historical and political context of the Soviet Union, while also referencing developments in international architecture of the period.
