The Calvert Journal is teaming up with architecture magazine ArchDaily to spotlight the greatest socialist-era buildings of Eastern Europe, Central Asia, the Balkans, and the Caucasus.

Eastern Bloc architecture: the buildings that defined an era highlights 50 extraordinary structures from across the New East to celebrate the region’s underappreciated architectural heritage.

Each week, ArchDaily and The Calvert Journal will be shining a light on five different buildings and their architectural and social significance. The first piece, “Futuristic Hotels and Avant-Garde Resorts”, will be published on Wednesday 24 June.

The project also marks the start of a new content partnership, with both magazines publishing articles that highlight the architectural treasures of the former Eastern bloc.
