Some of it just screams communism for some reason eh?
You know that if you saw something like that, didn't know what it was, you can probably point out that it was built under the sphere of influence of the USSR.

from what I studied, this type of architecture is called russian consructivism, the russian way of modernism. most of these buildings are "workers' clubs" which were basically comunity centres.
the funny thing is one of the famous russian comunity centres was a "Public kitchen", guess what happened to it, or what chain replaced it, McDonalds!
