This project suggests a way of visualizing the history of the housing policies, and intents to encourage the collective memory for the political events and political regimes. The project reinterprets the Soviet tradition of placing propagandistic slogans on top of the buildings in form of three-dimensional letters. It suggests this time to decorate the tops of the residential buildings with the quotes from significant official documents which started a new course of housing policies and, thus, changed the city’s future as well as the lives of its inhabitants. The buildings chosen for the project are the physical manifestations of the quotes placed on top of them.
