It was impossible to discern behind the propaganda grandeur of utopian architectural projects at what cost throughout the Soviet period the mythology of the triumphant victories of socialism, the creation of a new system of values, and the provision of the material and technical base for the construction of communism were achieved. Passing like a red thread through the three main Soviet architectural trends, they could clearly illustrate the aspirations, hopes and dreams that excited the minds at one stage or another of the existence of the USSR. But being unfinished or unfinished for one reason or another, these ghosts of a bygone era personify the utopianism of ideologemes that have not been able to withstand the test of time.
