world pictures Uzbekistan: Soviet Tashkent

The Exhibition Pavilion of the Artists' Union of Uzbekistan was built in 1974 and has other hints of tradition, not only in the arches but in the patterning on the walls, which is reminiscent of the old technique of covering walls with alternating glazed and bisqued tiles.  It's called banai, and there's lot of it in Samarkand.
