You didn't quite get my point. It was not only about buildings to be erected but, in the first place, about buildings (and whole blocks) to be demolished to make place for these structures. Their loss would have been irreparable.
If this Stalinist utopia were established on some empty spot I'd have no objections.

Belgrade in 1930s, this project was rejected, it was runner up for the "Albania palace" which is nevertheless a very nice building, some say the first skypscraper in the balkans.


This building also never came to be in the 1930s. It was postponed because of the ww2 and never finished.

Design for a "Germankneipe". I don't really know much about this one but I found no indication (on the internet) that it was ever built.
