Armenia reestablished its independence nearly 25 years ago with the legacy of Soviet architecture. These buildings across the republic are as fascinating as they are monotonous. Their utilitarian purpose is incorporated into the design: colorless blocks, uniform heights. An idea of creating something similar while giving some differences like the windows, lines, shapes and textures were given some style. These all makes the Soviet Architecture interesting and amazing just as ugly and monotonous it is.
