About This Project

 There are stereotypes in the world that in the “era of developed socialism” architecture was boring. Art critics Shapiro-Obermayr and Alexander Vakhter decided to refute this statement. They gathered an exhibition “Soviet Modernism 1955 – 1991”, where they showed the western audience the non-standard aspects of the architecture of this period. One of the central exponent of the exhibition was a picture of a

high-rise building   in Bobruisk , Belarus.

It was built in  1985 in the style of “Soviet Modernism”.

Chief architect: Vladimir Galushchenko

Engineer: Ignatovich

Place of design process : Architectural complex workshop No. 4 of the Mogilevgrazhdanproekt Institute.
