A Futuristic Communist Ruin

Part of our Failed Architecture team had the priviledge to visit this extreme piece of symbolic architecture that is stuck in the communist past of Bulgaria, last year.

The Buzludzha momument was built by the Bulgarian communist regime in 1981 on top of a historical peak to commemorate a late 19th century socialist movement.

These stunning pictures are by British photographer Timothy Allen.
