The commieblocks are very ugly and depressing. Did the USSR and other eastern block nations have plans to build nicer flats? The commieblocks were only meant to be a short term solution.

Sarajevo is split into 4 munciipalities. The eastern 2 are the nice beautiful historical ones. The western 2 are just kilometer upon kilometer of commieblocks... here are some really old pictures. Here they actually look sort of nice.

I hate commie buildings. These must be the worst architectural solutions initially designed to cope with rising population in cities. Think about it guys. No matter what city you're from. I wonder if anyone had given thought to long term affects of these blocks of concrete. It's downright degrading. I'd like to see them all gone in Sarajevo by 2020. Better to have suburban areas than a stack of LEGO blocks.

^ I dunno, they have their charms. In many places in Europe, of course, suburban areas are out the question. There's no land. Sarajevo is a pretty good example, actually. Commie blocks can impress just with their stacking order. The main problem, really, is their shoddy construction.

'Commie blocks' are certainly very existant here in North America too, but nowhere near as spread around. And the quality of construction usually lends itself well to rennovation. But that's what I think should be done with them--rennovate them. Learn from Berlin's Plattenbau.

I think renovating is too loose a term. I visited Albania last summer, Tirana. I prayed to God that I was color blind, but I was not. They renovated and painted everything in a strange range of neon colors. It's like a Romanian hooker's closet if you squint. I fear anything of this nature for Sarajevo.

Tear them down, the commie blocks, build something nice that blends with life, nature...not tries to conquer it in a gesture that the West never understood anyway.

"The building was like a concrete carcass...crawling with human maggots." - this isn't about commieblocks, but in my opinion, it fits.

The painting treatment probably works for Albania--the buildings are too far down to be saved.

Tearing it down is impractical. But again, I think Germans have the right idea.
