FREDERIC CHAUBIN COSMIC COMMUNIST CONSTRUCTIONS PHOTOGRAPHED PDF

They reveal an unexpected rebirth of imagination, an unknown burgeoning that took place from until These buildings represent a chaotic impulse brought about by a decaying system. Their diversity announces the end of Soviet Union. Taking advantage of the collapsing monolithic structure, the holes of the widening net, architects revisited all the chronological periods and styles, going back to the roots or freely innovating. Some of the daring ones completed projects that the Constructivists would have dreamt of Druzhba sanatorium , others expressed their imagination in an expressionist way Tbilisi wedding palace. A summer camp, inspired by sketches of a prototype lunar base, lays claim to its suprematist influence Promethee.

Fascinated by the massive scale of Brezhnev-era architecture, the French photographer has toured the former Soviet Union since , in search of dramatic examples of these sculptural buildings.

The ss was a strong period for Soviet architecture, especially in the peripheral republics, where outlandish designs were an expression of the striving for independence, an early inkling of the break-up of the USSR. Architects at this time picked up where they left off following the suppression of the avant-garde by Stalin in the early s, and were able to capitalise on advances made in engineering in the interim period, producing buildings with enormous internal spaces and dramatic cantilevered protrusions.

These were the final emphatic declarations of the solidity of communism before it cracked up. Chaubin mostly concentrates on the edges of the former empire: the Baltic states, the Caucasus and central Asia, and particularly on buildings set in wide open landscape, which look like deposits from outer space.

The Georgian Ministry of Highway Construction. Enormous concrete circuses, built in most major Soviet cities from the late s onwards, look like flying saucers, as does the now shabby Ukrainian Institute of Scientific and Technological Research in Kiev. Even palaces of marriage — register offices — look like the dwellings of Martian princes. Because the Soviet society for which these buildings were constructed no longer exists, many of them are defunct and abandoned. Sanitoriums once replete with elaborate modernistic glass chandeliers and asymmetrical swimming pools are no longer maintained, due to a lack of funds and, among those who can afford it, a preference for holidaying abroad.

But equally, a broad public is waking up to their inventiveness and craftsmanship, irrespective of the repressive political state that spawned them. It would have been valuable to have more information about what is happening in these buildings today, but, nevertheless, this book is a bold foray into an architectural period that is barely documented, either in the former Soviet Union or the west.
