urbanks is a labour of love, a one-man band. There isn’t, strictly speaking, an ‘us’. As a solo project, the urbanks website grows incrementally, one page at a time. Concerned with urbanity, urbanks looks at the historical and geopolitical events that have shaped our towns and cities, primarily those of the 20th century.

Duga Radar Barracks

The Duga Radar was a huge military instalation and required round the clock administration. Hundreds of soldiers of the Red Army were based at the barracks on site. As was typical for military bases in the Soviet Union, the walls of the builldings were decorated with Soviet Realist murals.
