The proper Soviet person shares common values like striving forward to new achievements and becoming better, faster and stronger. Any inconsistencies with the norm are condemned. Everything has to be the same: a TV in the corner, a rattling sideboard with dishes, a carpet, a floorlamp, a portrait of Sergei Yesenin on the wall and skis on the balcony. My project is about typical module housing and the lives of people in it. Does typical housing mean having a typical life? Can we bring something individual into this stiff system?
