Politics will change the architectural style



Iosif Stalin : politician
After 1932 the state policy stopped encouraging the so-called architectural avant-garde and only allowed the projects in neoclassical style. This decision changed completely the future of Moscow and moved it away from the constructivist trajectory to the one which leaded to such buildings as the famous Seven Sisters. This change can be easily seen in the projects for the Minsk State Opera Theatre by Gayk Galstyan, which he presented for the competition in 1933 and 1934. If the first one reminds of constructivist style, the second one is already very neoclassical.
