'Sleeping districts' of Moscow, Plattenbauten of East Berlin, modernist estates of Warsaw, Kiev`s Brezhnevki: although these are home to the vast majority of city dwellers, post-war suburbs of central and eastern Europe have been invisible for decades. Eastern Blocks is a photographic journey through the concrete cityscapes of the former Eastern Bloc, inviting readers to explore the districts that became a playground for mass housing development after WW2, including objects like soviet 'flying saucers', houses 'on chicken legs' or hammer-shaped monoliths. The book contains over 100 photographs taken by Zupagrafika, with special contributions by local photographers, showcasing modernist and brutalist architecture scattered around the cities of Moscow, (East) Berlin, Warsaw, Budapest, Kiev and Saint Petersburg. Divided into 6 chapters, the book includes a foreword by Christopher Beanland, index of architects, orientative maps and informative texts on the featured cities and constructions.
