Although Armenian architecture is more than one thousand years old, one of its most striking periods is modernism, i.e. the architecture of the 1960s-1980s. Many works by Armenian architects have become classics not only of Soviet, but also of world architecture, such as the Zvartnots Airport or the Cascade architectural-monumental complex.
