Distinctive design!
I especially like the change induced by light and shadow. Unfortunately, there are very few good pictures.
Lovely people from Tashkent, makes more pictures!

Partisan monument in Macedonia. Shaped like fist. No info about the year of construction, but I believe it's somewhere in the 1950's or 1960's, when the memories of WWII were still fresh. BTW, this kind of monuments are wide spread in my country, and sometimes you can find them in quite remote areas, in mountains, forests etc. Probably that saved them from destruction.

^that's a very decent of stalinism's own brand of neoclassical, it can stand on its own even without the ideological / historical background

Looks to have remained in quite good shape. Although I hate the empty run-down fountain. Those can completely ruin an area.

It was renovated,







but with a mismatched logo and material on the "tower"



and without the swans in the fountain.

Great that the fountain was also restored. I hate empty fountains.

That new material on the tower looks good. I wonder what it is, metal?

I was looking over a collection of old postcard with French ZUPs, and I was wondering what to make of them. Back when they were build, commie blocks and their urban environment were identical to striking levels to the ones that were built at the same time in France (and not only). Does that make the French equivalents commie architecture? If we're supposed to use the term "socialist" then this view would make more sense because France has a strong socialist tradition, but it has to be said that as far as I know the ZUPs were a national policy in a time when national government was not socialist / leftist, but the opposite. Or maybe it's the opposite, communist architecture is just a part of post-war international style?
On the other hand, nowadays commie neighbourhoods have decayed in a way that is unique to them, making confusion between Eastern and Western equivalents very difficult. I have only known them like that, which has made me perceive the residential part of commie architecture is it's most specific Eastern, totalitarian side - but I don't know if I can believe that anymore.

Here are some examples.



Le Plateau (Ris-Orangis, a Paris suburb)



La Meinau (Strasbourg)



Breil-Malville (Nantes)



Perrier (Anemasse)



La Plaine (Oyonnax)



Grigny (now, probably the worst suburb in the South of Paris)
