That's just your cognitive dissonance talking.

This almost excessively ornate and colorful style is awesome.

It is also a bit unfortunate that many smaller towns and villages are full of such houses in various states of disrepair, but then again I reckon that renovations are becoming more commonplace these days so hopefully that'll change.

Those houses are really beautifull, but is there something that makes them special socialist or is it just the way that in rural russia the traditional country architecture never changed despite political changes?

The style was merely updated in the Soviet times. But it thrived.

Would be interesting to try with one first.




I wouldn't call that thread "Soviet Houses", because it's traditional russian style, even if they were build at soviet times. I think you cant find such houses all over the Soviet Unionm like in Tadjikistan or Aserbaijan for example, just in Russia, maybe Belarus and Ukraine and northern Kazakhstan.

I thought of calling the thread "RSFSRian wooden houses" but decided not to because that would have sounded retarded. The style itself largely died out after 1991 having been mostly replaced by petty-riche brick houses and equally tasteless finnish-style wooden srubs.

In rural areas private house was the main type of housing. Heck, even small cities like Rostov-Veliky are half wooden.

In general, there was quite a bit of continuity between early (1918-1950s) Soviet/communist architecture and traditional architecture:



Vorkuta, Russia, founded 1930s.


Perm 36, a gulag.




Magadan, founded 1930.


Typical Stalinist architecture.



Havirov, Czech, founded 1955


Karl-Marx-Allee, East Berlin, built 1952


A typical dacha of the USSR period. Note the hammer and sickle.


Beria's dacha

This

doesn't seem so absurd when you note that architecture, especially Communist architecture and especially especially rural Communist architecture, did not abruptly turn modernist after WWII.

Typical American 1950s house:



Typical British 1950s house:

Can you resize high-reses to 1280 or at least 1600 px?

Is there anyway to do so without losing the hyperlink (I don't want to take pictures I don't own into Imgur)
