That is a cool UFO, it's so 1960s.

The PCF headquarters is a stunner.

You're dead right!
Sadly no typical socialist architecture.

It would have been great if the Soviet Union continued to build in Constructivist/Bauhaus/Corbusian style instead of the 'Khrushchyovka' style.

The building of the newspaper "Politika", Belgrade, Serbia (no info about the architect or the year of the construction). I think the building was damaged during the NATO bombing on Belgrade in 1999, so maybe this is the reconstructed look.

Well, I guess, If only that design was built... it's like the Lenin `skyscraper monument`, immpressive in design, but keep in design.
