Almaty - Bank of Kitsch

Selected for Google Maps and Google Earth

Pillars covered in metallic paint. Walls shining in 80ies ice cream pastell colors. A mumbo jumbo of eclectic architectural quotations. This whole place screams taste does not come with money.

An eyesore in a city with pleasant tree lined streets and some great architectural classics from the 30ies to the 70ies.

Unfortunately image of Alma-Ata, much has changed. and not for the better. This is one example of thousands of gaudy eclectic remakes.
