Melnikov House RU-4569055


I received this official Postcrossing card and just had to share it. 
At first I could not see the house in the postcard, could you? I just thought it was a strange desert.
Turns out it is the world famous masterpiece of Soviet Avant-garde by Konstantin Menshikov

Built by wood and brick, it is very simple and made of two cylinders that form a figure 8..
Ekaterina thank you for this gorgeous postcard.

  1. What an interesting card! I didn' spot the house either but had me running to Google to look it up and of course you had the link there ready for me to look at. Fascinating!
    Thanks for sharing,

  2. By the way, I'm in the process of putting all my postcards on Flickr (public). I have about 1000 already on there. This is the link: https://www.flickr.com/photos/113208606@N08/?
