My favorite part of soviet architecture is how wonderfully awful it is, forcing you to rethink your own aesthetic values.

Soviet architecture just reflects how simply horrid and brutal life in the nation(s) was/were.

thanks a lot for these, lattice! (:

it's quite weird to see corbu's early 30's style in such large scale. btw, i remember my history teacher once told me that the building was in terrbile shape... from the photos here it looks very ok to me. have they recently renovated it? or... ?

anyway, this is a fantastic thread. i'll soon scan some good-quality photos from a huge book called "architecture of the ussr 1917-1987" - there's even some very-very bad photos of estonian stuff here...

keep up the good work, lattice!

aah, one very interesting thing:

the scale of these planned soviet symbols is just incredible...


...

interesting fact: the crystal island building designed in norman foster's office, if built, would extend up to the height of lenin's crotch

here are some examples of soviet-time estonian architecture.

...

hotel olümpia in tallinn.

completed in 1980 and designed by estonian architects toivo kallas and rein kersten. it has been renovated and now looks a whole lot better.


...

song festival stage in tallinn.

completed in 1960 and designed by one of the most important estonian architect of all times, alar kotli together with henno sepmann and uno tölpus.


...

the huge linnahall building in tallinn, originally the palace of culture and sports, completed in 1980 and designed by the soviet-time star architect raine karp with riina altmäe.




...

also by raine karp, the so-called sakala center in tallinn, completed in 1985, the building was very controversially almost completely demolished in 2007.


...

administrative building in the town of rapla, estonia. completed in 1977 and designed by another local star, toomas rein.

because the building was uniqe, not like most of soviet-time copy/paste architecture. it was a fine example of monumental soviet postmodernism, and one of the best works by the famous architect raine karp.

many people disliked the building for its communist past - it used to house the bureau of political education.

architectural value was not considered by the city officials and the developer... although the heritage protection, art / architecture historians and other intelligent people were against demolishing the building...

soviet-time architecture is not very well thought of in estonia... i hope this will change soon.
