Nostalgia of Culture: Contemporary Soviet Visionary Architecture (“БУМАЖНАЯ” АРХИТЕКТУРА: ПИКНИК НА ОБОЧИНЕ ИЛИ 3АДЕЛ НА БУДУЩЕЕ?) is a theoretical book that was published to accompany an exhibition of original drawings by young Soviet architects. The exhibition was held at the Architectural Association in London from 10 November to 10 December 1988. The book contains four essays written by Michael Below, A. G. Rappaport, Catherine Cooke and Brian Hatton.
The text is in English and the illustration consists of black-and-white photographs and drawings.
