Articles about the construction | What architecture shot in New Year`s Soviet films Which buildings chosen for the filming of the famous Soviet New Year`s films said architectural historian Denis Romodin.  Many people love to watch the New Year's Soviet film classics 1950-1980-ies, but not all, pay attention to the scenery in these films. Often, the shooting took place in kinopavilonov, but some Kinoshlyagery shot in the entourage of the real urban environment (on location in the film have been widely used so-called Brezhnev era). Of course, in such a positive light and film directors and writers have tried to show modern and beautiful architecture, sometimes with irony, if demanded by the plot.

Perhaps, the first Soviet Christmas postwar film - it's "Carnival Night" with the famous song "Five Minutes" by Lyudmila Gurchenko. All the action takes place in the studio interiors of houses of culture, and despite the fact that the tape was released in 1956, the scenery in the film are presented in typical Stalinist style. In this tape is only one scene where the building is a real shot at Zhuravleva Square, which is now called the Palace on Yauza.

The building was designed by Illarion Ivanov-Shicai in 1903 for Vvedensky People's House. Then it was a modest building in the style of rational modernity. In 1946-1947, the building was rebuilt in neo-classical architect Boris Yefimovich and acquired its present form. From 1947 to 1959 theater Mossovet located within these walls, and in 1959 and 1960 - Television Theatre, hence were broadcast concerts. Then for a long time, it housed the Palace of Culture of Moscow Lamp Factory.

"Irony of Fate or Enjoy Your Bath"

Another, no less well-known Christmas ribbon - "Irony of Fate, or Enjoy Your Bath" - vividly reflected the industrial housing construction and its impersonality, which became the object of criticism in the 1970s.

But at home, where the characters in the film Zhenya Lukashin and Nadia Sheveleva lived, is not typical. The film was used for the filming of the house №113 on Vernadsky Prospekt in Moscow. Now on his wall - plaque that tells about this event. Only three of these houses were built in the years 1969-1970, and they are standing next to each other. It was an experimental series of standardized parts catalog Common. author of the project was made MNIITEP team led by architect Andrei Samsonov. But then the Council of Ministers of the USSR and GlavAPU considered too expensive series. Later, this same team was able to make it the basis of a known mass and a series of P-3.


Another well-known Soviet Christmas movie, make "architectural kinotroyku" - "Magicians". The shooting took place not in the studio, and "live" interiors: Hero Seeds Farad strays through the corridors of the hardware-studio complex (ASK-1) TV center "Ostankino". The massive gray glazed parallelepiped on a light podium was built in 1964-1969 years by the team of architects led by Leonid Batalov, headed at the time the workshop №7 Mosproyekt.

Long corridors of the building and were beaten in the film. It also removed the cabinet interiors Nuin director of the institute.

But the other rooms rented in the Palace of Culture ZIL building built in the constructivist style by architects brothers Vesnin in 1930-1936 years. Why constructivist building was chosen for the interiors Nuin Institute - the answer is quite simple: it was in Moscow, and it was able to work the whole crew, as well the vast halls of DC come for crowd scenes. In addition, by the time the inside was renovated and the interiors have acquired a new meaning in the spirit of the late 1970's architecture. However, the appearance of the Institute determined by two buildings - the hotel "Union" in the Left Bank district of Moscow and tourist complex in Suzdal, which was commissioned in 1978 and became the largest object of the hotel and tourist infrastructure of the Golden Ring. Authors of the project - architects, Mark and Yuri Orlov Raninsky. Original modern architecture with elements of ancient artwork was for its time a perfect combination of domestic architecture traditions. However, its interiors with decorative wood carvings and samovars were not good for research institute, so the shooting was selected DK ZIL.
