The Storefront for Art and Architecture is currently showing CCCP: Cosmic Communist Constructions Photographed, described as a ‘photographic exploration of a parallel architectural universe’.

Soviet Architects and Their Edifice Complex Nicolai Ouroussoff NYTimes May 16, 2007

“The show relies almost exclusively on the photographs of Frédéric Chaubin, a Paris-based magazine editor who spent five years traveling across the former Soviet Union, uncovering forgotten architectural works in cities like Tbilisi, Yalta and Yerevan. The results are a revelation.”

See some of the photos and an interview with Frédéric Chaubin here. And for more on Soviet architecture, see this old post as well as this one.
