Comentariul autorului:

This album showcases a number of valuable socialist modernist landmarks built between the 1960s and 1980s in the former Eastern bloc. The analysis that BACU Association conducted on the state of this heritage and the 148 coloured images create a consistent overview of these functionally diverse objects, the design of which reflects regional and national features. The iconic buildings included in this inventory were skilfully designed by remarkable architects.
