Here, the Constructivist game comes full-force and the sculptural main stair overcomes several floors and serves different levels in the middle of an appropriately scaled giant hall. This was decorated with a mural which was deemed too scandalous for the regime, and covered up as soon as it was finished (on the link below there are some images of that).
