# Brutalism # Eastern Bloc # Architecture

Streets in the sky, prefab panel housing estates, raw concrete flying saucers, corn cob-shaped tower blocks; these are some of the constructions that recast Eastern and Central European urban landscapes after WWII.  

This playful and engaging book allows readers to explore and learn about the brutalist and modernist architecture erected in the former Eastern Bloc and ex-Yugoslavia, and build some of their most intriguing edifices, from the massive housing estates in Moscow to the brutal skyline of Tbilisi.
Brutal East vol. II
includes chapters with photographs and texts providing a valuable insight into the featured buildings and their history, as well as a foreword by Alexander Ostrogorsky. The book contains nine pre-cut and pre-folded models to press out and assemble with easy-to-follow instructions.
