Yerevan, Armenia as seen from the air. In 1924, Yerevan was subject to a massive reconstruction along architect Alexander Tamanyan’s plans to create a city of wide, Neo-Classical avenues. Mount Ararat, in Turkey, is in the background.Historically a majority Azeri city, until the plan’s realization in the early 20th century Yerevan was a relatively small town. The reconstruction, however, laid the groundwork for the city’s rapid growth and a wave of Armenian migration from the surrounding areas. Today the city is the political center of the Republic of Armenia and a major cultural center for millions of Armenians around the world.Downtown Yerevan is today home to many large scale Modern and Post-Modern creations, a result of Soviet-Armenian architectural megalomania.
