Description Change this

A project by the architect Aleksandr Belokon with a very brutalist outlook, built when the city was still called Kuybyshev (dedicated to a Bolshevik revolutionary, the previous name of Samara was used again after 1991). In this 20-storey residential high rise, the asymmetrical balconies are alternatively connected one to another creating a strong and rather impressive effect, that is highlighted by the position of the building itself (on a big avenue and without other buildings around covering the sight). A similar solution was used also for the security staircases on the short sides.
