Great holmertz 2020-09-20 4:52

Hello Jorge,
You were lucky you could take some nice photos between your attacks of stomach problems.;-)
I suppose this building isn't much admired by architectural experts because of its Stalin connotation, but I have to say it is quite stylish and absolutely impressive. And the photo as such is remarkably bright and sharp.
Best regards,

Default To holmertz: skyscraper


Yes, I don't think they are trash architecture.
I presume stalin, as a former member of orthodox religion, had some feeling about as a russian building should to be, there is a kind of link between the shapes of the upper part of these building and the towers of kremlin and some churches and he ordered those details.
can you imagine being an architect building something to stalin? or even being a doctor, or a minister, or a general.. he was like a kind of alive monster-god.
I like to think what would history IF... of course my life is filled with IFs too.
stalin was almost killed by a carriage when he was a boy. How would be the world if he had died ?

take care
