Abstract

In the period of Soviet industrialization (1920-1940s), Sotsgorod new developments were often erected from scratch – in steppe,
taiga or the desert. Their workforce recruitment was impossible without large-scale housing. Barracks were the first truly mass housing to be built in Sozgorod new developments in the industrialization period. They were a mass phenomenon providing a
roof for about 80-90% of the population of industrial settlements.
