Pretty Pictures Friday: Archphoto.ru
We love visiting modern architecture from places outside of our educational canon: Asia, Africa, South America, Canada, New Jersey. You know, the world outside of the USA and Western Europe. What a pleasure it was to receive an email about archphoto.ru, a commercial gallery of Russian architecture in Moscow and St. Petersberg, spanning from the czars to now.
Being the modern architects we are, we of course went straight for the Constructivist and Brutalist categories for Moscow, and were delighted to find many buildings we've never heard of, and some modern classics we thought long-demolished. Winner in crazy Brutalist (but why we like Brutalism, obsessive expression in only concrete) is "Apartment building" (pictured), credited to A.Meerson, E.Podolskaya, M.Mostovoy, G.Klimenko, and dated 1978.
