Do they have to be to have socialist architecture? And in the time the buildings where build I posted, Belgium might as well have been regarded as a socialist country indeed although on a differend level. But when the state hands out money so you can build your own house outside of the city, or to have kids, or to drive a car, it does sound like socialism.

OK, you're right. Belgium is a socialist state, and your buildings look very socialist.

I didn't want to be rude, I thnk that VITORIA MAN was only joking

Anyway, socialist buildings shouldd be the ones built under a socialist economical system, so the countries of the eastern bloc + Yugoslavia and Albania. Am I wrong?

This thread should also include fascist architecture, because there are some really nice examples of that as well. So it would include Spain, Germany, Italy.
