This series is an ode to an architectural heritage that is either lost or unfairly undervalued. The main aim of the project is to reveal the beauty and the value of Soviet modernist architecture to the indifferent public through the magic of colours and shapes which accentuate brutal, yet fascinating forms of these monuments.
