The book Soviet Asia is giving a distinct glimpse on Soviet Modernist Architecture in Central Asia. Propaganda, manuals and other contemporary documents affirm that the state played a leading role in the urban development of Soviet Central Asia and that housing was regulated according to criteria established by the political authorities.more
In reality, however, the situation was more complicated: Soviet buildings in towns and cities were usually erected next to existing structures, so old and new ideas of the city stood side by side. The photographs in this book highlight the distinctive architecture created in the towns and cities of Central Asia during the final decade of the Soviet regime, featuring buildings that embody the ideas of modernity that were arriving from far-distant Moscow.
