Neighborhood structures of the 1960s-1970s in Irkutsk

Pavel Dorofeev


This article is a study of neighbourhood construction during the 1960's – 1980's. These neighbourhoods are presented as self-dependent structures; this being valuable not only in terms of their complex conceptual content but also socially and culturally. The planning decisions aesthetically reveal the cultural potential of each district. This is an illustration of some qualitative characteristics of the Irkutsk micro-district spaces.
