Book

Soviet Asia by Roberto Conte & Stefano Perego

Regular price £22.50

Soviet Asia, the latest book from Fuel, focuses on the Soviet modernist architecture of Central Asia. Stefano Perego and Roberto Conte documented buildings from the Soviet republics of Kyrgyzstan, Kazakhstan, Tajikistan and Uzbekistan, all built from the 1950s to the fall of the USSR. 

This is a fascinating collection, which shows the Asian influence on the brutalist aesthetic and, through the use of intricate pattern and mosaic work, the prominence of Islamic and Persian architectural and design elements.

As with their other books on Soviet architecture, there are some staggeringly beautiful, monumental and otherworldly buildings to be found within.
