Cool thread.

Really interesting to see the influece of deco on the mainly 1930's proposals. Also what struck me was the magnificence and status of them - seemingly at odds with communist values? What about the cars in the rendering, all looked very expensive and large, no signs there of the communist values of workers uniting - seems more about dreams sadly never realised.

Absolutely amazing! The Soviet Union spent a lot of money on the space program and the cold war. Just imagine if all this had been built. It turns out that Communism fell and the cold war ended and nothing ever came of this beautiful architecture.

They really have some cool buildings! I think I like Stalinist architecture. It has that grandeur I'm crazy about.

I'd have to agree, with many of you, this thread is fantastic. Thanks for the insight into proposed soviet architecture.

Some of the designs are so grand, so intricate and so overpowering, funnily enough I really like some of them. I will also concede some of them are remarkably modern for their time... amazing that that box style scraper was conceived 1929-1930 era - such foresight! Even teh House of Books buidling appears strikingly more modern than similar buildings from this period - with large opening/windows and less stepping, same too for the aeroflot building which uses large expanses of glass, not normally found in art deco period building elsewhere in the world.

If this had a clock instead of the oversized statue, it wouldn't be bad at all.

Impressive buildings! That Stalin statue would have been the biggest statue in the world I guess? It is so huge that even the gigantic building under it looks rather small.
