Indeed. The negligence of the residents is what makes these buildings lose their appeal, not their design.

Here are two more similar examples:

Residental complex near Šampionče, Kisela Voda district, Skopje. Liljana Petrovska (1988-1991)

A restored building in Tbilisi, I'd assume from the 50s.

The Center for Culture in Bitola, Macedonia. According the architecture, probably built in the late 1970's or the 1980's.

1976-1980, designed by Aleksandar Smilevski and his consultant Marko Musić. The interior is by Ljubica Nikoljska. It looks pretty Soviet to me.

I don't know what possesses people to brick up their balconies like that.

Yeah, its a thing in commieblocks. In my commieblock building one idiot bricked his balcony so he only has small windows that are near the celing. I went to his apartment, he got a room but it looks like he lives in a warehouse because it has almost no sunlight.

Btw, what do you think about a new thread where we will post pics of commieblock in which we live in?
