Landscapes of Communism

REVIEW Landscapes of Communism ☆ PDF, eBook or Kindle ePUB 'In the craven world of architectural criticism Hatherley is that rarest of things a brave incisive elegant and erudite writer whose books dissect the contemporary built environment to reveal the political fantasies and social realities it embodies' Will SelfDuring the course of the twentieth century communism took power in Eastern Europe and remade the city in its own image Ransacking the urban planning of the grand imperial past it. I took my time reading Landscapes of Communism in part because it s a weighty tome and therefore inconvenient to take on trains Moreover it is a pretty dense read and perhaps somewhat of an acuired taste I find reading about buildings curiously relaxing for some reason Hatherley takes the reader on a scrupulously detailed tour of communist architecture which includes a selection of black and white images but is largely reliant on detailed descriptions It s both a travelogue and history lesson written in Hatherley s distinctive tone incisive and intermittently waspish Each chapter covers a different category of communism s physical remnants roads housing memorials and so on Although I found the first half enlightening parts of its dragged and it was the second half that proved fascinati Barenaked Jane urban planning of the grand imperial past it.

REVIEW Landscapes of Communism ☆ PDF, eBook or Kindle ePUB Set out to transform everyday life its sweeping boulevards epic high rise and vast housing estates an emphatic declaration of a non capitalist idea Now the regimes that built them are dead and long gone but from Warsaw to Berlin Moscow to post Revolution Kiev the buildings their most obvious legacy remain populated by people whose lives were scattered and jeopardized by the collapse of communism and the introduction of capitalism Land. This is a weighty tome beautifully typeset with correct diactritics and bound with better uality photographs than the author s previous books but with a word count probably twice as large I enjoyed it but it took me a very long time to read it in contrast to New Ruins and Bleak through which I whizzedThe classification of eight types of buildings and landscapes is inspired and the discussion of each of them with countless examples is comprehensive Clearly the author has done very thorough research I learned a lot about history of the former Soviet Bloc countries The enthusiasm for the metro systems in particular comes across with great verve and the feelings inspired by the various memorials and museums are almost as good as being there oneself I am now inspired to visit some weird and wonderful p Paying the Piper uality photographs than the author s previous books but with a word count probably twice as large I enjoyed it but it took me a very long time to read it in contrast to New Ruins and Bleak through which I whizzedThe classification of eight types of buildings and landscapes is inspired and the discussion of each of them with countless examples is comprehensive Clearly the author has done very thorough research I learned a lot about history of the former Soviet Bloc countries The enthusiasm for the metro systems in particular comes across with great verve and the feelings inspired by the various memorials and museums are almost as good as being there oneself I am now inspired to visit some weird and wonderful p

REVIEW Landscapes of Communism ☆ PDF, eBook or Kindle ePUB Scapes of Communism is an intimate history of twentieth century communist Europe told through its buildings; it is too a book about power and what power does in cities Most of all Landscapes of Communism is a revelatory journey of discovery plunging us into the maelstrom of socialist architecture As we submerge into the metros walk the massive multi lane magistrale and pause at milk bars in the microrayons who knows what we might find. Outside of some specific architectural terms I don t think this book is as impenetrable as some have suggested Hatherley writes well even if he does seem a bit of a prig at times His sympathies obviously lie with socialism and I m inclined to disagree with a few of the concrete efforts he champions but this doesn t make this any less of an enjoyable journey around the former communist states This is going to sound a bit facile but it could do with pictures It s great that a lot of the images are ones he and his girlfriend took or come from old postcards but there are so many structures described that I spent a fair bit of time checking them out on my phone as I was reading
