From the viewer's position in the middle of the gallery, atop a double-yellow line, they assume the perspective of "the most privileged and uninhabitable location in Los Angeles&mdash;the middle of the road."

As Calvert 22&rsquo;s Power and Architecture season demonstrates, there is a healthy interest in the abandoned or neglected buildings that once served as landmarks of Soviet ambition: the rack and ruin of utopia.

The space is incredibly successful as an art gallery but also as an architectural performance; there are continuous structural accents inviting you to explore the sensuality of the space.
