The Kudrinskaya Square Building


The Kudrinskaya Square Building is a building in Moscow, one of seven Stalinist skyscrapers, designed by Mikhail Posokhin and Ashot Mndoyants.

The building was richly decorated but lacked a unified stylistic direction. The parapets are in the ancient Roman style. The lobbies decorated with marble columns, stained-glass windows, and lamps in the form of candelabra are a reminiscence of Gothic interiors. The pointed turrets around the spire resemble the domes of an Eastern Orthodox church. On the roof of the stylobate, there are sculptural portraits of Soviet workers and soldiers.
