From the text- "Critical junctures in history have always been especially difficult periods for architecture, for they are periods when people's outlook, their aesthetic ideals, indeed their very way of life undergo change. One such juncture was the Great October Revolution, which released tremendous creative forces. In a historically short period Soviet architecture has travelled a long way, producing results of enormous social significance.
