These buildings are about as hilarious as they are insane. This was all during Stalin's rule. I'm sure that most of these "architects" were killed in one of his massive purges.

The Aeroflot building would actually look kind of interesting. But the Defence building is an enourmous monstrosity!

The Aeroflot bldg is somewhat similar to the Russian White House (the one that was shelled during the coup against Yeltsin and repaired by Turkish contractors)

Magnificient ...somehow insane but remember they date back to the 30s,and i think those Commie architects have already known that some plans were just vision/fantasy ideas,and they apparently didn't come up with that.
The 'House of Books' has a very prominent design,too.

Ivan Leonidov's proposal for Ministry of Heavy Industry (1929-30). It was to be situated at the same parsel as the Vesniny's project shown above.

It is often called a mother of all modern 'box' scrapers:

That s really one of the best threads ever, i d rather have this buildings than skyscrapers (except the first one, where instead of stalin can be another figure, and only when it s all is neutral, so non-communist)
