Every year new modern facilities appear on the territory of VDNKh1 in Moscow, Russia. But not all of these buildings fits into a richly decorated space of social realism era.

And yet there are modern buildings that look decent in the background of architectural monuments. One of these objects, which is worth a look is a one-storey building of the Chess Club. It is particularly interesting to view this construction in more details in the light of the emerging idea to build the Chess Academy in the center of Sochi.

It would be great to have something similar in Sochi, as here, in a resort town, we have only commercial projects trending now.
