'Soviet Asia' is an important record of disappearing Eastern Brutalism

In recent years, much has been published on Soviet architecture, monuments, public transportation shelters and graphic design. (Have a look at @_brutal_architecture on Instagram or FUEL's publisher page on artbook.com for a snapshot of the global craze.) Well, this week, we're delighted to announce the release of Fuel's newest, Soviet Asia, collecting 140 eye-opening photographs by Roberto Conte and Stefano Perego. Featured here are: Hotel Uzbekistan by I. Merport, L. Yershova and V. Rashchupkin (1974) in Tashkent, Uzbekistan; Lenin Monument, Istaravshan Dam (1965) in Istaravshan, Tajikistan; and Chorsu Bazaar by S. Adylov, Y. Miroshnichenko and V. Ishkakbayev (1980) in Tashkent, Uzbekistan. "The rewriting of the cities of Central Asia continues," Marco Buttino writes. "These photographs represent an important record of the buildings that survive, documented before they disappear forever."
