Hotel Rossiya project, Moscow 2005

Hotel Rossiya, Moscow is a modernist building complex built during Brezniev's time, in the sixties. With 2700 rooms, it was the biggest hotel in Europe at the time, and it was used by party members coming to Moscow and important foreign guests. The hotel’s location on the Moscow River, next to the Kremlin, symbolized the Russian Empire’s ever-lasting apparatus and the bright new future represented in the ruling Communist Party.
