Streaming Video - 2007
Rate this:
In 2003, Moscow's Triumph Palace became Europe's tallest building. What is striking about this luxury residential block is not so much it's height but the fact that it resurrects an architectural style closely linked with the city's turbulent political past. In the 1940s Josef Stalin commissioned a series of seven tall towers that would compete with the skyscrapers of New York. Known as the Seven Sisters, the towers were created to inspire Russian citizens to celebrate the strength and glory of the communist state. Matt Berman investigates the design and political genesis of these towers and examines why an eighth sister, the Triumph Palace, has been added in 21st century capitalist Moscow.
