The Russian Academy of Science

I think The Russian Academy of Science is amazing. It looks like it might be a functional building as well, but perhaps as a secondary consideration. Does it indicate a different attitude to science I wonder?

It is a representative building, inspired by socialist utopian ideals even though it has a different design approach than the ones in Europe. Founded in 1961 under Castro‘s regime. An interesting architecture.

That has to be one of the most beautiful set of buildings in the Caribbean area.

The Museum of Macedonia, located in the Skopje's old town (the building with the odd shape), built in 1976. It's the first time I see it from this aerial point of view.
