They do want to rebuild it, but it is not a priority. I think it really should be. Plac Pilsudski is so empty without it.

Well done commie building! Reminds me of Frankfurter Allee (Berlin) or Magdeburg. I'm really into the Stalinist style. Too sad they couldn't proceed to build like this. One of the few virtues we had over the evil capitalists of the evil West

I agree, I like the classical proportions of socreal and its contextualism...much better than the commie blocks at least they defined spaces...and best of all when they used real stone like above. Wish they continued with that and built real cities.

What is the name of this building, or what was it used for before the war?
It's very beautiful.
And was it ever reconstructed?

Looks like it was reconstructed in a simplified way, doesn't it?

Look at the pre-war dormers of the roof and compare to the rebuilt version, for instance.

I think we can accomplish amazing things if we all work together, that's for sure. Pardon my ingornace, but I didn't know that Kyiv was badly damaged in WWII. My mother lived in the Polish part of Kyiv up until being shipped out in 42 - you might know it, around that beautiful brick gothic roman catholic church. She had many fond memories of Kyiv and loved it very much.

Firstly Kyiv was awfully destroyed during 1930-s years by communists (for example more then 100 wonderful churches were detonated).
Secondly Kyiv was almost fully destroyed during WWII. For example this is Khreshchatyk - the main street of Kyiv:

Speaking of an opera house, according to Wikipedia, the architecture of the original Warsaw philharmonic building was modeled after the Paris opera house.

It was obviously a very beautiful building.
Is this the philharmonic of today?

Yes, it's the same place and "the same" building.

You're correct. The building was burnt, but the skeleton survived. Actually, the Institute of Technology was a place of heavy 2-day fighting.

Parts of walls were destroyed by "goliats", but this facade was lucky.

Anyway, it was rebuilt in 1945 quickly. After all - engineers

It looks like a very authentic reconstruction. I would not call it is simplified. You can't really tell the difference.
