Subject:Архитектура брежневской эпохи — arrangements of mad grotesqueness
Time:12:22 am

По ссылке от tacente — фотографии советской архитектуры 1970-90х от Фредерика Шобена.

In his book Cosmic Communist Constructions Photographed, Frédéric Chaubin documents 90 buildings in 14 former-USSR republics belonging to what he calls the 'fourth age' of Soviet architecture. They reveal an unexpected rebirth of imagination, a burgeoning that took place from 1970 until 1990 and in which, contrary to the 20s and 30s, no 'school' or main trend emerges. These buildings represent a chaotic impulse brought about by a decaying system. Their diversity announces the end of the Soviet Union.

На пятой фотографии у меня проснулось какое-то смутное чувство, а на седьмой я расчехлил iPad и перечитал следующие бессмертные строки.

Five-pointed arrangements my ass!
