communism is just concrete Stalinist rental apartments
Nope, just not even remotely accurate or fair of a statement to make.
There were a variety of styles behind the iron curtain, and reducing the entire architectural legacy of most of a continent through the 20th century to "commie blocks" is just plain wrong.

These are buildings that were made to be landmarks

this discussion is about these residential buildings - which were the pinnacle of ugliness in Soviet times

You said nothing about residential buildings until this post. You just made a blanket statement that was not true.
