The project which made Ukrainians proud of their modernist architecture
The soviet heritage to many is an ugly revenant of the past, but not for us, hence we created the book Soviet Modernism. Brutalism. Post-Modernism. Buildings and Structures in Ukraine 1955-1991. Our mission was to change this view and make thousands of Ukrainians care about their heritage. Video production Minimal Movie created a powerful viral video about great modernist buildings in Kyiv. The short film was seen over 100K times and was mentioned dozens of times in Ukrainian and international media. The video became one of the symbols of the battle for the conservation of the modernist gems in Ukraine.
This campaign not only made Ukrainians pay attention to the book, but also pay respect to the country's architecture.
