One of the rare examples of 1920s Constructivist architecture:

Gosprom Administrative Complex, Kharkiv, Ukraine (1928)









They've restored part of the facade, but not the whole building yet, sadly.

To think that the whole building zone in front of the famous square in Kharkiv was partially destroyed by fire when the nazis withdraw in 1943... what a pity.

Gosprom Administrative Complex looks really utopian I love how it looks now.

That's what 1920s Constructivism was all about, looking futuristic and utopian.

The insides indeed are very socialist-fashion. I mean, it's like a classic building of North Korea, mixed with a little "Palace of the Republic" of former RDA. And the ceiling, well... it looks like the one at old party building in Bulgaria.
