The "Volga Region" pavilion has been transformed four times. In 1954, it was rebuilt in the Stalinist style, but just five years later it had to be converted into modernist style: the facade of the pavilion – renamed "Electronics" by then – was covered with metallic panels. In 2014, the VDNKh management decided to restore the pavilion to its original appearance, but the initiative was met with criticism from architects and city activists.
"The "Electronics" pavilion was the first to be rebuilt after VSKhV became VDNKh," said architecture historian Anna Bronovitskaya. "So, since we are going to revert to the exhibition's historical name, it would be unreasonable to destroy such important landmarks as this. "Moreover, this is one of the first works of authorship in Moscow's architecture of the post-Stalinist period," she said, pointing out that aluminum covers on facades represented the first example of employing aircraft construction methods in architecture, which was typical for the era. "This alone is worthy of preservation," she added.
