In Cosmic Communist Constructions Photographed, photographer Frédéric Chaubin reveals 90 buildings sited in fourteen former Soviet Republics, expressing what he considers to be the fourth age of Soviet architecture. His poetic images reveal an unexpected rebirth of imagination that took place from 1970 until 1990. No “school” or main trend emerges here. These buildings represent a chaotic impulse brought about by a decaying system. Also outlined: the geography of the USSR, showing how local influences made their exotic twists before the country was brought to its end.

It’s hard to imagine that publishing juggernaut TASCHEN began life as an 18-year-old’s comic book shop. Founded in 1980 and still helmed by Benedikt Taschen—an art lover who believes in the democratization of the art-book market—TASCHEN is now a worldwide leader in art book publishing, best known for its superb subject choice, text, design, and high-quality printings.
