ALONSO, Pedro Ignacio. From Mass-Production to Mass-Destruction. ARQ (Santiago) [online]. 2018, n.98, pp.92-105. ISSN 0717-6996.

During the Cold War, the Soviet Union was expected to lead the world once capitalism fell prey to its intrinsic contradictions, as Marx envisioned. Yet, what is currently happening to mass-housing blocks in Russia contradicts him: the very technological advances that Khrushchev put at play to launch the mass-housing program have evolved and left the blocks prey to its own obsolescence. In this text we see how, while the former ussr has been finally taken over by capitalism, mass-destruction seems to be the ultimate fate for Soviet mass-housing.

Palabras clave : Collective Housing; Khrushchovkas; Conservation; Panel; Malevich.
