Roberto Conte and Stefano Perego
Soviet Modernist architecture in Central Asia
A journey across the former Soviet republics of Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, Uzbekistan and Tajikistan with architectural photographers Roberto Conte and Stefano Perego.
“The resulting images showcase the majestic, largely unknown, modernist buildings of the region. Museums, housing complexes, universities, circuses, ritual palaces – all were constructed using a composite aesthetic. Influenced by Persian and Islamic architecture, pattern and mosaic motifs articulated a connection with Central Asia. Grey concrete slabs were juxtaposed with colourful tiling and rectilinear shapes broken by ornate curved forms: the brutal designs normally associated with Soviet-era architecture were reconstructed with Eastern characteristics’.
