It probably means that the "handle" which occupies the topmost section is where the communication and surveillance equipment is installed.

Those images of the Moscow metro are the best looking examples I've seen of stalinist academism, thanks for posting. I guess I'll have to check the Moscow thread too.

What about DDR, east Germany? Neither the USSR was a socialist country.

Hotel Leningradskaya is another example of Stalin era architecture's elegance.

Though Yerevan is about 2800 years old you can hardly find any buildings older than 200 years in this city. Most streets, avenues, bridges and buildings were built during Soviet era but the diversity of styles, materials, designs is fascinating. Unfortunately Downtown Yerevan is situated in a tiny valley between hills and mountains and the territory of the center is limited. But the city is growing rapidly and new businesses need areas in the center. That's why some buildings of socialist era has been demolished recently. And here are some pictures of buildings demolished in last 10 years (photos were taken in 1970՛s-1980's):
1. Palace of the Youth (aka "Kukuruz", translated into English as "corn, maize")


2. Yerevan Circus


3. Hotel Dvin



4. Main Entrance of the Market (was saved after protests of Yerevan citizens)
