The Barracks City’s Health

  • Dmitry Khmelnitsky

Abstract

The article tells about Stalin’s housing reforms in the USSR in the late 1920s and early 1930s and their results. The case studies of Magnitogorsk and Stalinsk (Kuznetsk) show the formation of the structure of new urban settlements. The division of the Soviet urban planning into the official and unofficial branches is analyzed. The first one designed stone apartment houses for the Soviet elite of different levels. The second one created industrial workers’ settlements, which consisted of communal barracks.
