In the 50s of the last century, a resolution was adopted in the Soviet Union stating that «Soviet architecture should be characterized by simplicity, austerity of forms and cost-effectiveness of decisions.» The State Committee for Civil Engineering of the USSR, created in 1956, was supposed to control the standardization process. Every year, on December 31, Russian television invariably recalls Soviet mass housing development. «The Irony of Fate, or Enjoy Your Bath» by Eldar Ryazanov is a satire film on the uniformity of typical housing, where not only streets, houses and porches are similar, but also furniture and even apartment keys. At the same time, moving to such an apartment in Soviet times was considered a boon, compared with living in a communal apartment or «Khrushchev».

The choice in favor of cheap and low-quality development is is beneficial for construction companies, which are often not related to architecture. Modern standard buildings, like the previous Soviet panel high-rise buildings, lead to the loss of authenticity of most of our cities. As a result, cities on the periphery become faceless, like their inhabitants — LEGO-cities and LEGO-residents.
