Some great images of what it might look like if they had built Borif Iofan’s Palace of the Soviets – a giant wedding cake of a building with a huge Lenin sculpture on top. Rem Koolhass has written a bit about how the foundations, which were actually built, got turned into a giant indoor/outdoor swimming pool.
Le Corbusier also submitted a project to the design competition for this building. He didn’t win, but his design was a very influential early modernist project.
