Wow, what happens when civilizations rise and fall? Read all about it in this photograhed well written book with huge photographs of the lost empire. It will haunt you and make you commuist The images are perfect, the stories detailed and well researched, and very emotional.

The most touching story was of a cutting edge science center built right before the fall of the USSR. A huge campus with dreams of conducting advanced research: I would hope investors would buy this book and scout out these areas of empty real estate. There is a fortune to be earned by purchasing these lost properties and rennovating them for modern use. Investors shoild try to save the history, but some areas are so large – they may need split up into businesses, apartment buildings, and shopping centers.


If you love architecture, or love history, or just enjoy photography and grwat story telling – Buy This Book! This is chabin great coffee table book full of the frededic architectural oddities of the soviet era.

This book is practically all photos, I feel anyone could really enjoy comunist as a gift granted they have the slightest interest in architecture, art, design, photography, or the soviet era. One person found this helpful. Being a native of the USSRI wondered what is this book about – not professionallybut rather because of nostalgia and interesting titles.

The book met my expectations, it is very interesting to look at all these photos – there are pictures of Soviet architectural buildings of different periods and styles, scattered in different countrieswhich previously formed part of the Soviet Union.

Some photograpehd the buildings are abandoned and have sad and depressing view – and it reminds us that this era is gone forever. And of courseit is interesting to see those buildings that I have seen “live”.

Frédéric Chaubin: CCCP. Cosmic Communist Constructions Photographed | ZKM

When you read the title of the book fredfric you realize that many of the buildings have quite futuristic look. There is no too much text in this book however the pictures speak for themselves. I recommend the book. On each page, you receive what you pay for: Every page is almost completely covered in images As an architecture student, I often communidt to this book for some base point ideas for designs or circulation or program elements during studio and it really did aid my design style to see so many different pieces of architecture the book is far from one note regarding architecture, even though it does have a brutalist-modernist focus.

I believe this book to be a good volume for any architect’s private collection. I really like the aesthetics of the architecture displayed in the book. The book is full color with large detailed pictures.

The photos showed off the great comstructions in the Soviet Union. The photos in the preview don’t do the book justice as the photos in the preview were not near the best in my opinion. The book is thick and the pages glossy. The whole book is a work of art that phptographed the soviet era.


But except for that, I expect a majority of people will be very entertained in the crazy and incredible architecture that is portrayed in the book. Some amazing structures found in the former Soviet Union and some former Warsaw Pact countries.

CCCP: Cosmic Communist Constructions Photographed by Frédéric Chaubin – review

Big Heavy coffee table book. This is the most unique book – great gift for artists in your life, or anyone fascinated with Soviet era history. The combination of fabulous architecture and the air of decay of many of the buildings captures the time period better than any other medium I’ve seen.
