Moscow Monumental: Soviet Skyscrapers and Urban Life in Stalin’s Capital

« All Events

Historian Katherine Zubovich will discuss her new book Moscow Monumental: Soviet Skyscrapers and Urban Life in Stalin’s Capital, an in-depth history of the Stalinist skyscraper. In the early years of the Cold War, the skyline of Moscow was forever transformed by a citywide skyscraper building project. As the steel girders of the monumental towers went up, the centuries-old metropolis was reinvented to embody the greatness of Stalinist society. In Moscow Monumental, Zubovich explores how the quintessential architectural works of the late Stalin era fundamentally reshaped daily life in the Soviet capital.
