The Structure is Rotten, Comrade is a graphic novel written in French about Frunz, an unassuming boy born in Paris. As his parents separate, little Frunz turns inward, then to his Lego blocs for sustenance. Little Frunz is a disaster waiting to happen. He grows up to become an architect and decides to leave Paris. He first heads to Moscow, then to Yerevan, where as a university professor, he lectures his students about the principles of good design – and his unremitting love of cement. Meanwhile, Yerevan is in the middle of a building boom. Its denizens live in slums, outraged at the destruction of the historic city. Most of them have lost their homes to an ominous plan to reinvent the Soviet city. Yerevan is also a city on the verge of revolution as residents are flushed out of their homes with tragic results. Yet Frunz’s father forges ahead with his urban plan to rebuild the city anew – a city without memory or history.
