Yerevan's Cascade

The Armenian capital of Yerevan has many a fine structure to its name, all made of that characteristic reddish tuff that is indigenous to this tiny landlocked country in the South Caucasus. But there is one structure that draws attention like no other, the Cascade, the brainchild of a group of pioneering modernist architects from the 1960s.
