The authors of the project Socialist Modernism document the monuments of socialism.

Socialist Modernism is the initiative of the Baku Bureau for Art and Urban Research. The project is devoted to the architecture of the social bloc of the Eastern bloc. The organization stands for the preservation and restoration of buildings created in the 1950-1990s.

According to the employee of bureau Dumitru Rusu, social modernism architecture gave the city space a certain character. “Boulevards, public buildings, living units and monuments, they all are a clear reflection of the social and cultural context of the socialist period,” Rusu says.

Now Socialist Modernism documents examples of the architecture of the socialist countries of Central and Eastern Europe. Images of the most interesting buildings authors of the project publish in the account @socialistmodernism.
