This new publication is a comprehensive study of Soviet Modernism in Ukraine. The authors and architects, Oleksiy Bykov and Ievgeniia Gubkina, have studied modernism in architecture in depth over many years. In this 250-page book, they explore the uniqueness of modernist objects in all its forms - from interior design to city plans - across the entire territory of Ukraine and over three full decades. Furthermore, this title explores the differences between the main concepts in the debate on late Soviet architecture, in which the term 'brutalism' has, until now, been understood as a western phenomenon.
