ARCHITECTURAL DESIGN OF RESIDENTIAL BUILDINGS IN WESTERN SIBERIA IN 1945 - 1955


This article examines the objectives of post-war residential housing design in Western Siberia and ownership of these objectives by the professional community. The effects of economic requirements on the architectural and aesthetic qualities of residential construction in the cities of the region are demonstrated. Based on a review of critical comments from colleagues and tenants of new residential buildings, the author identifies positive and negative aspects in the use of «Stalin Empire» stylistic methods in the residential architecture of the Western Siberian cities by local architects and examines the views of architects on their own creativity after the publication of the well-known resolutions of the mid-1950s and the opinions of professionals concerning the techniques of residential development in the region in connection with transition to industrial mass housing construction.

Key words: housing construction, residential architecture, Soviet architecture, post-war residential architecture
