A minority interest

This will only be relevant to a few of you out there - but one of the unexpected bonuses of getting lost trying to find Tiger Rocky, was that we walked right by a famous Constructivist building, the Rusakov Worker's Club, built in 1927  by Melnikov. This was one of 30 trade union commissions in the Moscow region around that year.  Though it now is neglected and empty, those projecting lecture rooms still have the power to inspire those of us sad enough to be enthralled by architectural stuff.

It is very close to Sokolniki Metro, just not sure in what direction.....
