Concrete Siberia: Soviet Landscape of the Far North. A photographic insight into the Soviet-era architecture of one of the most extreme, little-known and vast territories on Earth.

Siberia, a vast area covering eleven time zones.

‘From the Ural Mountains to the Arctic Circle, the book features the extensive microrayons of Siberia’s urban centres, the brutal landscapes of industrial monotowns, cosmic circuses, concrete theatres and opera houses, as well as prefabricated panel blocks, or panelki, erected on permafrost’.

The book is loaded with more than 100 beautiful photographs by Russian photographer, Alexander Veryovkin. It’s divided into six chapters and what is so striking is the human intervention which gives a perfect sense of scale and the smallness of the residents against a mighty brutal backdrop

Novosibirsk, Omsk, Krasnoyarsk Norilsk Irkutsk, Yakutsk

Its a must for fans of post-war soviet modernist architecture.

As well as the images there is a foreword by architectural critic Konstantin Budarin, orientation maps and details about each featured city and its buildings.

‘Prefabrication and serialisation became the key premises for Soviet urban development when Khrushchev came to power. For Siberia, it meant a new wave of colonisation. ’
