Architectural historian Anna Bronovitskaya and photographer Yuri Palmin, will give an illustrated lecture on the most underappreciated era in the history of Soviet architecture, and present their new book on the subject.
Moscow: A guide to Soviet Modernist Architecture 1955-1991 covers around one hundred buildings in Moscow, with separate chapters on Sokolniki Park, the Moscow Metro, VDNKh, and the town of Zelenograd. This is the first book to examine modernist architecture from Khrushchev to Gorbachev as a total phenomenon, from the naive modernism of the “thaw” period to postmodernist experiments, including the Pioneer Palace, the Ostankino TV Tower, the Rossiya Cinema, the TASS building, the “golden brains” of the Academy of Sciences, and selected lesser-known buildings such as the House for the New Way of Life and the Lenin Komsomol Automobile Plant Museum. The authors place these enigmatic buildings within a broad historical, cultural, and political context, which includes postwar international architecture. All of the buildings featured were photographed by Yuri Palmin.
