The Power of Architecture

From the link:

"The cottage was not designed to impress foreign ambassadors with its architecture and sumptuous interiors, or to entertain members of the court and inspire awe in the subjects."

Exactly! There is much talk like: The Romanovs lived in Palaces, but the Serfs in sheds... But there is a reason for that, a political-economical reason: Russia always had to attract foreign capital and therefore it had to prove it's credit worthyness.

Today's architecture out of the same reason is the "Moscow Business Centre":

That I did not know so Thank you for the info. I think this is one of the prettiest palaces in history, it is just gorgeous. To think that it has survived all these decades and remains intact is amazing. I would love to visit and take pictures of the inside as that is an area of interest to me, and the grounds with the white wrought iron planters and fences are so outstanding. What a beautiful place and hope the gov keeps it that way for history sake.
