Title: Beauty or death

About the Photo:

I decided to devote this series to the Kyiv Crematorium, which is a prominent representative of the modernist architecture of Kyiv – unique, beautiful, but in poor condition. Now such objects are either incompetently restored by new owners, or are in disrepair, or under threat of demolition. Only recently, the Save Kyiv Modernism initiative group, consisting of architects, designers and activists, began to work in Kyiv to protect modernist objects.I would like to believe that the local authorities will join the public initiative and help to preserve and support such unique architectural monuments as the Kyiv Crematorium.
