Some more socialist buildings in Ghent from the same era:

Bank of Labour (now a government building, urban planning office)


Cooperative pharmacy Vooruit


Offices & printing press of socialist newspaper Vooruit (newspaper doesn't exist anymore, the building now is a hostel & bar) - 1930

Excuse me . Belgium was one of the first strongholds of socialism in Western Europe; Since 1911, socialists have been in the federal government for 75% of the time. Counting in the strong regional governments, there has been some sorts of non-stop socialist power in Belgium for over 100 years.
Ghent espesically has been one of the posterchilds of socialism within the country.
FYI: The Internationale anthem music is written by someone from Ghent.

But moreover, these buildings were not built by the state, neither were they built by capitalists. They were built by cooperatives of laborors, making it true socialist buildings.

I would argue they count as socialist buildings more than all the communist ones posted here.

The color used to be a bit different before renovation/insulation but I think they did a pretty good job:

Actually, I prefer the all-white scheme that it has now. Maybe because they're different times, but it looks way better.

Yeah it looks pretty good now. They could have easily painted it orange, pink and lime green. The plants hanging from the balconies are a nice touch. Just get rid of the signs, I wouldn't want my house to be a giant advertisement board.

I'm pretty sure there are two shades of light grey, while previously it was dark grey, with some lighter shade and white on balconies (that weren't repainted at least):



I guess the new painting scheme makes it feel a little bit lighter which is ok, I can see logic in that.
There is also a high-rise nearby called "Haperowiec" repainted in a pretty similar fashion:

^ Demolition for such a jewel? ****tards...

The wing on the left reminds me a lot of Dominique Perrault's national library buildings in Paris, which of course came much later.
