Red Banner Textile Factory, St Petersburg (1926)

One of the most famous buildings of the constructivist movement. Sadly it is run down.

They look better the most of the bus stops in my country. I mean in the design, not in the condition they are.

Also, in that demolition (that was political, for obvious reasons), the crashed monument killed a woman and a little girl (only 8 years old...). No surprise there was a massive demonstration against that Georgian Presidente the next day.

Last I've heard, there are plans to rebuild it in Moscow. Hopefully this is true because it was a really nice monument destroyed for selfish reasons.
