Coming soon from Taschen, Cosmic Communist Constructions 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.
