Stalinist Architecture Abounds in Haerbin

Stalinist Architecture Abounds, originally uploaded by timquijano.

China hired Soviet planners to come to Haerbin to design the buildings and city in general. It was part of the “Learn from Big Brother” campaign when Sino-Soviet relations were agreeable. This is a building on the campus on the school I’m attending, Heilongjiang Daxue (University). I don’t think this building is new enough to warrant Soviets building it (building lifespans here are very short), but the influence is evident.
