The same people who did the brutalist maps have also done a Constructivist Moscow map:







Quote:
his two-sided, dual language, folding map features over fifty leading examples of Constructivist architecture in Moscow, from Melnikov House and Shukhov Tower to the Narkomfin and Izvestia Buildings. The map celebrates the avant garde landmarks of the early Soviet era, including workers' clubs, garages, communal housing, factories, headquarters and more. The reverse side of the map features an introduction to Constructivism by Natalia Melikova and Nikolai Vassiliev, photos by Melikova and details about each building in English and Russian.

Perfect for a walking tour or framing, this map measures slightly larger than A2 open, folds to slightly larger than A5 and is protected by a wide band.

Other cities should follow this idea, especially those from the ex Eastern bloc that are full of interesting socialist architecture.

I'm surprised it's in as good condition as it is. I expected it to be totally ruined and overgrown, considering how the rest of Georgia's Soviet architecture is.

Nicely whimsical/psychedelic
Surprising for Soviet architecture.

Тагилыч, мог бы выбрать нормальные объекты, ведь у вас там весьма внушительный сталинский ансамбль... а не это коммиблочное унылое гамно. Не понимаю логики.

I totally agree with your comment, there is nothing special on those photos, just ordinary residential commiebloks. On this thread we try to show some more interesting socialist buildings/architecture, and I know that Russia has many of that.

It is Crișul Department Store. Named after the Crișul Repede river, which passes through Oradea. Built in 1978-1979, today it has five floors: a supermarket in the basement, jewelry, art, china stores and a restaurant at the ground floor, and fashion stores at the first, second and third floors. The fourth floor has a few offices for small companies.

This was probably a nice Constructivist building before it got 'Stalinized'

This looks much better than the later commieblocks.

The image of the Eastern Block and communism itself would be much different if this style proceeded to exist (maybe even in an evolved form)
