70 years of Stalin's skyscrapers!!!

"Stalin skyscrapers" — seven high-rise buildings built in Moscow in the late 1940s and early 1950s. In many foreign guidebooks these buildings are called the "seven sisters"

The eight hundredth anniversary of Moscow fell on the difficult post-war time. The country was just beginning to recover from the Nazi invasion. However, this day was begun the construction of Stalin's skyscrapers in Moscow
High-rise buildings are the pinnacle of the postwar "Soviet art Deco" in urban architecture; they had become surrounded by the never built Palace of the Soviets.
In the spirit of "high-rise" buildings erected during the same period, in Riga, Warsaw, Bucharest and Kiev
Urban legends say that the Moscow high-rise is only part of the dreams of Stalin on the city of the future, with the majestic administrative and residential complexes and perfectly smooth granite embankments. These legends are confirmed by the competitive projects of different architects. Looking at these models one can hardly imagine what it would look like Moscow.
Stalin wanted to make Moscow a "pioneer", and then all other cities would take the same form. Thus, the expression "sisters" could become popular throughout the world and to embody the strength and power of the Soviet Union.
Project construction of eight skyscrapers in Moscow was part of Grand plan for the construction of monumental buildings in all regional centers and capitals of the Soviet republics. Most important, already planned architectural objects, was to become the Palace of the Soviets, the so-called ninth skyscraper, whose construction started in 1939 instead of the destroyed before the Foundation of the Temple of Christ the Savior. The Palace of Soviets was planned as the tallest building of its time (415 m + 100 m height of the statue of Lenin) and was supposed to be the center of the entire Soviet state. Unfortunately or fortunately, but the Stalinist skyscraper appeared in a limited edition and then not received due development.

Прошу прощения, можно дать фото МИД с передней стороны(где герб СССР), а также побольше фото дома на Котельнической наб. И в целом ваши дома замечательные! Вы строите их в плоском мире?

Hello, at the foreign Ministry I did not hang up the emblem of the USSR because he thought that if the building someone will need to card, he's going to hang his coat of arms, and the Stalin skyscraper on Kotelnicheskaya embankment I'm still not finished)) so far, that's no photo, but will and photo and map. Yes, I build in a flat world, because even in the height of 255 blocks I didn't have enough on the map.

I heard the architects drew inspiration from New York's Municipal Bldg when they made these. Fantastic recreation nonetheless.

Yes, it's true, our Soviet architects were brought in the United States, and there they were tasked to design skyscrapers for Moscow not worse, but whatever they were like. And they got it. As for me, so they took something, even the Empire state Building
