The 1960s imparted a new spirit of Utopia to the Soviet Armenian architectural situation where the ideas of humanization and environmentalism emerged as a parallel ideology to the rigid utilitarian, functionalist principles in architecture and urbanism imposed by the political system formulated as an official ideology of Khrushchev epoch.


Levon Cherkezyan’s architecture was perhaps one of the best examples where new utopias materialized through the established Soviet mainstream architectural canon, manifested as modernist architectural experimentations. Some of Cherkezyan's structures and buildings were constructed on the shores of the Lake Sevan.
