Jeez, what a mammoth I never knew of! And look where, in some god-forsaken town in the vast space of the great Red Empire, and at the time when even largest cities of the country could hardly boast such tall highrises at all. I wonder what was the reason behind building it there.

Moscow. VDNKh (the Exhibition of Achievements of the People's Economy).
Pavilion No. 26 Transport of the USSR

The pavilion was built in 1937, in 1954 it was reconstructed and assumed its the current external appearance.
The pavilion was more than once renamed: in 1937—1938 it was the pavilion Cereals, in 1938—1954 — Cotton, in 1954—1955 — Agriculture, in 1956—1957 — Geology, Petroleum, Chemistry, in 1958—1966 — Chemical Industry.


Pavilion No. 26. A general view.

The façade of the pavilion is crowned with the figures of the Tractor Driver and the Kolkhoz Woman, the acroterion with the coat of arms of the USSR is mounted between them, two acroteria angularia, resembling vases with sheaves, decorate the corners of the façade.
A helicopter Mil Mi-8T installed before the pavilion is seen on the left.
See a close-up photo of this helicopter:




Pavilion No. 26. A fragment of the portico.
The portico of the pavilion Transport of the USSR is listed as a cultural heritage object in Russia - federal monument of architecture No. 7710437012.

I am pretty biased against socialist architecture mostly because of commieblocks and such stuff but I have to admit that there are some great buildings out there. I beleive many of them deserve some renovation after years and they might be considered pride once.

Commieblocks are just plain boxes, they represent more of urbanism than architecture per se. But there is some cool modernist, socrealist and brutalist architecture with its vibe and zeitgeist. Those are quite great!

Skopje, Macedonia, late 1960's - after the earthquake in 1963, destroying about 80% of the town, it was rebuilt in quite modern socialist city. This photo is from the central part.

Volgograd, ex-Stalingrad, Russia.

As the city was literally razed to the ground in the greatest and pivotal battle of the Second World War, it had to be completeley rebuild in the 1950s. So pre-war architecture is scarce here.

Railway station, 1954.





Central post office, 1955.



Intourist hotel, 1957, & Central department store adjacent to the right.



Volgograd hotel.



New experimental theater, built in 1915 but obviously totally overhauled in the 50s.





Central bank of Russia, Volgograd division.



Volgograd oblast court.



Local labor union's palace of culture. The inscription reads "labor in the USSR is a matter of honor, glory, courage and heroism".

The author of the photo claims that it's a part of a hotel.

Thanks for the explanation. It has very impressive shape and looks so futuristic. Though, it needs to be renewed.
