SPECTRES OF COMMUNISM
"A SPECTRE IS HAUNTING EUROPE —
THE SPECTRE OF COMMUNISM"
— KARL MARX
100 years ago the October revolution erupted.
The consequences it brought upon the world affected virtually every aspect of life. We want to reflect on how it affected urban aesthetic and more particularly — the architecture of St.Petersburg — the city of the Revolution.
With our pin-up like images we want to make a point of the meaningful aesthetics of the Revolution that is not to be neglected.

Bringing you twelve most peculiar pieces of avant-garde architecture in the world's most classicist city, our illustrated guide is an attempt at a whole new perspective on the revolutionary legacy and the developments of the Soviet architectural avant-garde.
