And even when it seems as if the world is falling down around me, I still find myself blah blogging away for some reason. And this is one of those posts where I really have no idea of what to blagh about. That bloggers block again. And this could be another one of those random thoughts blog entries yet again. And so I find the phrase communist architecture written down in one of those scribble books I have around for one of those 50 signs you're a blogaholic signs that I have blah blogged about in times past. And so what exactly does the phrase communist architecture mean. Does that internet bible dictionary Wikipedia have an entry for that. As I heard someone say a while ago "Gee that building looks ugly, like it is designed like a prison" or something like that. Was communist architecture designed to be oppressive and not so beautiful looking on purpose to keep in with the oppressive mood of its inhabitants of artists, the poor and the like maybe, housing designed to dampen ones spirits. Is it just meant to mean most urban cities and that cookie cutter home depo strip mall effect look maybe. Is it those public housing buildings, tenements, or any building in general. I would like to see if Wikipedia really does have an entry for this word, hold on a second...... Well the term communist architecture does seem to exist, used in conjuction with places like Berlin, Prague, Russia and something like "Communists left many ugly legacies to the Czechs; most visibly to its urban landscapes.....". Well what does a communist architecture look like? Is it the tree of life? Hold on another second as I try to look for one of those photos to put in this post as in the photo above..... Now I'm not trying to be funny, as some of those photos of communist architecture I just photoed up on this computer look really beautiful of those buildings like castles and the like and some look downright drabby like factories and the like. So maybe communist architecture reaches a whole wide range of looks. And whatever this communist architecture may mean or look like, have a great communist architecture day.
