House in Kotelniki District

Yesterday I happened to be near one of seven Stalin's skyscrapers and want to show you some details. The building was constructed in 1951 and its recognizable architecture aimed to show the power and force of Soviet state.
This one was the apartment building, where Soviet cultural and science elite was living.   

The details on the sunlit side of the building

The front view of the building from the river tour few days ago is here
