Unrealized Moscow (1930s to 1950s)

The drawing above is of the proposed Palace of Technology in Moscow. There was a competition in 1933 to design the palace but alas, it was never built.

The drawing below is of the Building of the People's Commissariat of Heavy Industry. It was rendered in 1934 but it too was never built.

You can see more of unrealized Moscow here.

Fascinating site with some great designs. Considering much of what was built during much of the Soviet era, it's amazing that designs like these were even considered.

actually, stalin-era architecture in moscow is not unlike these designs.
