NARKOMFIN decaying, Moscow

This has to be one of my favorite buildings in the world. One of the key reasons I visited Moscow in January 1998 was to study the buildings of this Heroic Communist era. Narkomfin is the finest of these structures, although now decaying. It is the best example of a truly Constructivist building embodying all the social ideals of the time.
