The Muscovite admitted that she was afraid to walk past the complex of hostels built in the capital on Bolshaya Pirogovskaya in the 1930s, which the locals call “Grebenka”. Today the buildings are empty and look abandoned. Participants Facebook-Community “My Moscow” in the comments under the post of Russians shared a variety of opinions on this matter. Some suggested demolishing the complex.
“The fact that some detail of an architectural monument may collapse is warned by leaflets on the fence and walls,” the author of the post emphasized. The woman noted that this is not the first time she has observed such an “exodus into oblivion of the samples of constructivism of the 20-30s”. “The choice of materials for the construction of an object is always amazing. I don’t know, is this a desire for experiment, a pursuit of economy, or the elementary poverty of the post-revolutionary era? ” – she shared.
Her post received a lot of responses. “To be honest, I don’t know the exact structure and materials of this particular house, but then it was built with such unthinkable violations and“ innovative solutions ”that it is most likely almost impossible to preserve it”, “Then there was concrete, which took a long time to harden. The technology or operating conditions may have been violated. It would be nice to see the project if it is saved. Perhaps the safety margin was short-lived. Each building has its own service life. “Khrushchev’s five-story buildings” were designed for 20 years, for example, “Muscovites expressed their assumptions.
Several people noted that they live in buildings of the same time and are happy with everything. “I live in a house from 1928, which was later extended to two floors and the facade was redesigned in the Stalinist style”, “And my house was built in the same way. The walls are finished with shingles. The house is already 100 years old, but it is fine. The apartment has a wonderful microclimate, it couldn’t be better, ”they wrote.
One of the participants in the discussion noted that many examples of constructivism, being interesting in terms of architectural design, are completely unsuitable for operation these days. “They were built hastily, God knows what, and they aged very ugly. And the places in the city are occupied by trump houses, so it would probably be wiser to demolish them, ”the Russian woman concluded.
Earlier, Muscovites had an argument over the demolition of a shopping center. Some were pleased with this event, others expressed the opposite point of view.
