“Cosmic Communist Constructions Photographed” Book

Curated profiled a new photo-book documenting the best of the weird  in communist architecture earlier this month. “Coming [March 1, 2011] from Taschen, Cosmic Communist Constructions PhotographedCosmic Communist Constructions Photographed Book shares photographer Frédéric Chaubin’s investigation of the “final stage of Soviet architecture.” Free from a “school” and given cart blanch in a crumbling political system, Soviet architects of the 1970s through 1990s pushed boundaries and expressed in full force the ideological dreams. Chaubin’s photographs bring these buildings to life and remind of a vibrant artistic community often forgotten in our memories of the iron curtain.”
