frederic chaubin: socialist architectural eccentricities

Via BLDGBLOG and PingMag : a short piece with some fantastic images of architectural relics of the Soviet regimes in countries like Georgia, Belarus, and Ukraine. This understudied genre is a continuing obsession of mine - and although I'm most familiar with and fond of the architecture of the Western Balkans (former Yugoslavia), these particular buildings are quite stunning. The images leave me wanting more. Send any tips, links, references, etc. my way...

What an amazing building, it's pretty weird but coolest. My dad who likes to visit Viagra Canada
is architecture and he says that built this it's hardest.
