CCCP, Communist Cosmic Constructions Photographed

In the first half of the 20th century, while in Europe the modern movement of the hand of Le Corbusier and other great architects, flourished in the Soviet Union emerged a much more radical movement, Constructivism, of whose figures more prominent memory of El Lissitzky and Konstantín Melnikov.

Its most striking feature was the futuristic and spatial air breathing both his illustrations and his architectural projects, almost all of them of huge, like almost everything in communism, to It was so large that it had to be disproportionate.

All this is to introduce this book that much caught my attention (and I’d like to get my hands on). It is of CCCP, Cosmic enemy Constructions Photographed, which translated into the Spanish means, cosmic Communist constructions photographed, although translation is lost the game with the initials of the USSR (CCCP are its Russian initials).

In fact, photos do not belong to the constructivist style, because they were built in the rales of the Union, between 70 and 90, and that we could classify as of postconstructivismo, as most of the works were the original style to the end, freed from many technical and economic limitations, buildings that made reality only could dream at beginning of century.

Other architects left to your imagination, approaching ora Expressionism prays to a space style, or simply pure unbridled creation. A faithful mixture of styles reflecting the ideological dreams of a time, from the obsession with the cosmos to the interpretation of the individual.

The buildings that we see as an appetizer are almost all to pee and not drop. Huge cylinder of apartments overlooking the beach which illustrates the cover stops at the height of the bitumen any estate that populate our battered coasts. Not far behind the megablock emerging from the forests on the banks of the river.

Palm, however, takes her the large concave building with a great façade frameor that presides over the top of a cliff and that, if I am not mistaken, it is a political centre near Kaliningrad, but it could well be a plant brought solar energy of the future or the lethal weapon of the bad guy in any James Bond film.

The book of CCCP, cosmic Communist constructions Fotografiadas, with 90 buildings illustrating its 312 pages, written and photographed by Frédéric Chaubin since 2003, the publishing house Taschen publishes it and is available for 40 euros, but I hope to find it somewhere for something less, because it has gone to the top of books that I want to look in my library.

I leave you with a small gallery of photos, but you can gossip 100 of its pages on the Taschen website.
