It’s hard to overstate how enormous the Russian Embassy is. It was built in the 1920s by the wealthy Petschek family and designed in a neo-Baroque style by the Petcheks’ favorite architect at the time, Max Spielmann. This is the same family and architect, by the way, who built the nearby American embassy residence. Photo by Mark Baker.
