On the heels of his bestselling Soviet Bus Stops, photographer Christopher Herwig locates fresh wonders of the Soviet vernacular in Georgia, Ukraine and Russia itself

After the popular and critical success of his first book, Soviet Bus Stops, photographer Christopher Herwig has returned to the former Soviet Union to hunt for more. In this second volume, as well as discovering new stops in the remotest areas of Georgia and Ukraine, Herwig turns his camera to Russia itself. Following exhaustive research, he drove more than 9,000 miles from coast to coast across the largest country in the world, in pursuit of new examples of this singular architectural form.

A foreword by renowned architecture and culture critic Owen Hatherley reveals new information on the origins of the Soviet bus stop. Examining the government policy that allowed these small architectural forms to flourish, he explains how they reflected Soviet values, and how ultimately they remained—despite their incredible individuality—far-flung outposts of Soviet ideology.

The diversity of architectural approaches is staggering: juxtaposed alongside a slew of audacious modern and brutal designs, there are bus stops shaped as trains, birds, light bulbs, rockets, castles, even a bus stop incorporating a statue of St. George slaying the dragon. An essential companion to the first volume, this book provides a valuable document of these important and unique constructions.

Forlorn monuments or strange and individualistic works of art?

Forlorn monuments or strange and individualistic works of art?

Christopher Herwig’s photographs of Soviet Bus Stops never get old. “These are still the poorest areas of post-Soviet Russia,” Owen Hatherley writes, “their economies destroyed by the end of public subsidies and the command economy. In this context, the bus stops stand as forlorn monuments to an age when the people in high places still gave such areas some thought. But they also appear to contradict another preconception about the Soviet landscape – that it was extremely homogeneous. Everyone imagines the urban USSR as an endless series of identical concrete-panel slabs placed in vague, straggly wastelands, but these bus stops show another side: strange and individualistic works of art sited in green landscapes, whether the flat fields that stretch from Belarus to the Urals, or the Caucasian mountains. You might deduce from this that these bus stops are a counter-architecture of some sort, a protest against the assault on place and individuality. This would be a mistake.” continue to blog

What makes these bus stops so Russian?

What makes these bus stops so Russian?

It’s Labor Day weekend, the last big travel weekend of the summer. We thought we’d celebrate with a few photographs from the second volume of Christopher Herwig’s weird architecture blockbuster, Soviet Bus Stops. Featuring 160 color photographs of the astonishing and rapidly disappearing vernacular bus stop architecture of Russia, Georgia and Ukraine, this volume is virtually impossible to put down. Pictured here are two stops in Russia proper: at top is the Automotive Electrical Equipment Plant, Stary Oskol; below is a stop for the Siberian city of Omsk. continue to blog
