Via Flickr: The White House is the presidential office building in Bishkek, Kyrgyzstan. The White House was the site of riots during both the 2005 Tulip Revolution and the 2010 Kyrgyzstani riots.
The building is a seven story tall building built in Stalinist modern style, with the STO (Gosplan, Duma) building in Moscow as a model. The exterior is covered in marble. In front of the building is a large bed of red flowers representing the countries Soviet ties. In 1985, the building was built to be the location of the Communist Party’s Central Committee headquarters. It is supposedly in this building where Askar Akayev studied “the situation” during the collapse of communism. There is, “said to be” an underground complex under the Ala-Too Square (Formerly the Lenin Square) connected to the White House via an underground series of tunnels. On the front of the building, there is the crest of the nation. Before communism fell, the location was covered by the crest that was in use during communist times.
