Moscow That Never Was
Unrealised Moscow is a web site devoted to architectural drawings, created in the early 20th century, of buildings to be built in Moscow, glorifying the first Soviet state. Some of these buildings are really impressive looking, in a heavy handed, industrial way. The Soviet architects obviously loved arches, right angles, and heavy straight lines. That said, these drawings do look interesting. I especially like the Palace of Technology.
I may get asked: “Is this science fiction?”.
Maybe, maybe not. But it certainly is cool.
