Not sure if this belongs to the same contest , but quite interesting and from the same time...


quote from: http://www.thefullwiki.org/Palace_of_Soviets#Top_page
Quote:
The Palace of Soviets (Russian: Дворец Советов, Dvorets Sovetov) was a project to construct an
administrative center and a congress hall in Moscow, Russia, near the Kremlin, on the site of the
demolished Cathedral of Christ the Saviour.
The architectural contest for the Palace of Soviets (1931-1933) was won by Boris Iofan's neoclassical concept,
subsequently revised by Iofan, Vladimir Shchuko and Vladimir Gelfreikh into a supertall skyscraper.
If built, it would have become the world's tallest structure. Construction started in 1937, and was
terminated by the German invasion in 1941.
In 1941-1942, its steel frame was disassembled for use in fortifications and bridges. Construction was never resumed.
In 1958, the foundations of the Palace were converted into what would become the world's largest open-air swimming pool.
The Cathedral was rebuilt in 1995-2000.

Soviet vision of "New Moscow"


Vladimir Schuko and Vladimir Gelfreich participated in the early, public stages of the contest for the Palace of Soviets (1931–1932); their best known draft was an oversized near copy of the Doge's Palace in Venice.

Narkomtiazhprom (Ministry of Heavy Industry) and Palace of Soviets (soviet - transliteration of russian word "совет", meaning "council") were two different contests.

Is there a way of comparing the size of the dome inside the palace of the soviets to the size of the dome in Hitlers Volkshalle?

The Narkomtiazhprom (NKTP) was a 1934 architectural contest for the People's Commissariat of Construction of Heavy Industry, to be constructed in Red Square, Moscow. Notable entrants included Ivan Leonidov, Konstantin Melnikov, Vesnin brothers and Ivan Fomin.
