  1. I think this is all computer generated images CG. through a cad software. Strange how the sun is always shining from the same angel in the photos and the image color pattern is similar and the over all ” look “. I work doing CG with a CAD tool and this can all be done with simple render tool and a vector generated drawing software .

  2. What you are forgetting to say is that these kinds of buildings would only be built for the smallest part of the russian population… most of the people lived in wooden huts (farmers) or in overcrowded, dirty, small flats (workers) without running water or heating!
    I like the buildings you posted here, but please always keep in mind their purpose.

    • Why would he need to point this out? That isn’t the point of the post. This post is to simply show examples of beautiful architecture found in Russia. Whether or not it is widespread throughout the land is irrelevant.

  3. Well, the drawings are well-crafted, especially the animals and people, but the architectural sensibility is truly primitive with all those vertical edifices stuck on willy nilly. Sometimes the proportions are simply ugly, the lines forming a patchwork without a sense of whole. Nutty waste of craftsmanship. But thank you for posting. It is interesting indeed.
