Romanita Collective Housing Tower

Location: Chisinau, Moldova 

Completed: 1986

Architect: O. Vronsky

Genre: Brutalist, Soviet architecture, former USSR

Romanita, informally known as “Daisy” (romanita is the Romanian word for chamomile which is a form of daisy), was built as social housing to accommodate small family units. A socialist experiment in community living, the 73-metre high tower is still used for that purpose today but is showing definite signs of decay.
