I hate that communist architectural concept. They thought their ugly designs were georgeous, only beacause of its measures. Stalin, Boris Iofan and Le Corbusier, etc were architectural cancers.

PS: Sorry if this comment offend someone. I dont have anything against the communists.

You cannot compare avant-gard russian constructivists with architecture under Stalin. It's totally different, Stalin went back to beaux-arts and art-deco, he used arts to celbrate power. Constructivists were one of the most interesting movements of their time.
What does Lecor matter then?

Especialy that soviet-Tower and the cut-off-Image of it. That must have been a great fun to draw without 3d-Software
