On the occasion of the exhibition \"Soviet Modernism 1955-1991. Unknown Stories\" (08.11.2012 - 25.02.2013) the 19th Vienna Architecture Congress will gather in a single place, for the first time outside Russia, the most important experts on this as yet little researched epoch of Soviet modernism. Architectural historians, urban planners, culture theorists and architects from the former Soviet republics together with other international experts will examine in four thematic panels the areas \"Capitalism versus Communism. Architecture of Modernism in East and West\", \"The Soviet Heritage: National or Russian?\", \"Local Modernisms. Centrifugal Forces in the Architecture of the USSR\" and \"Built Ideology\" from the viewpoints of architectural history, politics and econo¬mics. As a further highlight the Architekturzentrum Wien is looking forward to hosting the \"last Congress of the USSR Architects\" - 25 years after the last assembly of the Union of Architects of the USSR in Moscow in 1987.


The Congress will be held in German, Russian and English.
Each talk lasts about 30 mins., followed by 15 mins. for questions from the audience.
