really liked it
bookshelves: non-fiction
Read in May, 2011

Knowing next to nothing about architecture, I was impressed by the accessibility and context provided by the introduction, but obviously a book like this lives or dies on its visual content, and the photos are fantastic. Monstrous 1960s-style science fiction buildings loom out of the mist or squat in town centres like invading spacecraft. Makes me want to book a flight on the next plane to Tashkent.
