Elected the architectural book of the year by the International Artbook and Film Festival in Perpignan, France, Frédéric Chaubin’s Cosmic Communist Constructions Photographed explores 90 buildings in 14 former Soviet Republics. Each of these structures expresses what Chaubin considers the fourth age of Soviet architecture, an unknown burgeoning that took place from 1970 until 1990.

Contrary to the 1920s and 1950s, no “school” or main trend emerges here. These buildings represent a chaotic impulse brought about by a decaying system. Taking advantage of the collapsing monolithic structure, architects went far beyond modernism, going back to the roots or freely innovating. Some of the daring ones completed projects that the Constructivists would have dreamt of (Druzhba Sanatorium, Yalta), others expressed their imagination in an expressionist way (Palace of Weddings, Tbilisi). A summer camp, inspired by sketches of a prototype lunar base, lays claim to Suprematist influence (Prometheus youth camp, Bogatyr). Then comes the “speaking architecture” widespread in the last years of the USSR: a crematorium adorned with concrete flames (Crematorium, Kiev), a technological institute with a flying saucer crashed on the roof (Institute of Scientific Research, Kiev), a political center watching you like Big Brother (House of Soviets, Kaliningrad).

In their puzzle of styles, their outlandish strategies, these buildings are extraordinary remnants of a collapsing system.In their diversity and local exoticism, they testify both to the vast geography of the USSR and its encroaching end of the Soviet Union, the holes in a widening net. At the same time, they immortalize many of the ideological dreams of the country and its time, from an obsession with the cosmos to the rebirth of identity.

Während mehrerer Reisen durch Osteuropa spürte der französische Publizist Frédéric Chaubin in zumeist peripheren Regionen des ehemaligen Sowjetimperiums architektonische Kolosse auf, die wie Kulissen zu Science-Fiction-Filmen erscheinen. Jenseits der genormten, staatlichen Sowjetmoderne scheinen sie durch ihren Nonkonformismus, ihre stilistische Vielfalt und regionale Extravaganz das Auseinanderbrechen der UdSSR bereits vorwegzunehmen. Ihre Architekten nutzten die Freiräume, die durch das Bröckeln der monolithischen Staatsstruktur entstanden: Sie gingen weit über den Modernismus hinaus und fanden zu den Wurzeln des freien Erfindens zurück. Die Wagemutigsten schufen Projekte, von denen die Konstruktivisten nur träumen konnten (Druschba Sanatorium, Jalta), andere zeigten ihre Fantasie auf expressionistische Weise (Hochzeitspalast, Tiflis). Ein Sommercamp, inspiriert durch Modellskizzen einer Mondbasis, offenbart suprematistische Einflüsse (Prometheus-Jugendlager, Bogatyr). Auch die sprechende Architektur war in den letzten Jahren der UdSSR weit verbreitet: Chaubin fand in Kiew ein Krematorium, das mit Betonflammen verziert war, und ein Forschungsinstitut mit einer abgestürzten fliegenden Untertasse auf dem Dach. Das Haus der Sowjets" in Kaliningrad wiederum scheint den Betrachter wie Big Brother zu beobachten.Der eklektische Stilmix spiegelt die ideologischen Träume jener Zeit wider von der Weltraumbesessenheit bis zur Neuerfindung der eigenen Identität. Er zeigt auch die ungeheure Weite der UdSSR und wie lokale Entwicklungen manch exotische Wendung nahmen, bevor sie das Ende des Landes mit herbeiführten. 9783836565059. Codice articolo 10-1649777
