I don't like those boxy modernist housing stocks. They built far better ones in the 20s/30s, such as those in Berlin or Leipzig.

There are some fine examples of stalinist architecture along Karl Marx Allee in Berlin.

How was that Red Square model supposed to work? Were the cars just going to drive on it without lines? How was the square supposed to stay clean and free of oil slicks if they just let cars drive on it?

The first buildings are indeed modernist, but pre-communist.

Bucharest has quite a nice collection of early modernist homes and buildings.
