67. Moscow. People's Commissariat of Agriculture


Dear Steven,

The Narkomzem or People's Commissariat of
Agriculture has a very dominant presence in the
Moscow's Sadovaia Ring. Built in 1933 by Aleksei
Shchusev is contemporary of next door Le Corbusier's
Centrosoyuz. Great examples of the new architectural
language created by a few architects in support of the
ideals of the Soviets Revolution.

Regards.
R
