Housing reform was  one  on
Khrushchev's agenda of the
Soviet Regime.To address the
dreadful urban housing
shortage bequeathed by
Stalin, Khrushchev
encouraged rapid,
assembly-line construction of
standardized, prefabricated
five-story apartment houses,
which proved to be a quick
fix, but not a long-term
solution.
