Lissitzky's book is a classic in architectural and planning theory, as well as an important document in social and intellectual history. It contains an appendix of excerpted writings by his contemporaries--M. J. Ginzburg, P. Martell, Bruno Taut, Ernst May, M. Ilyin, Wilm Stein, Martin Wagner, Hannes Meyer, Hans Schmidt, and others--all of whom illuminate the architecture and planning of Europe and Russia during the 1920s. There are over 100 plates and drawings.

Review:

" This book is a primary source for any full understanding of the origins of modern architecture in the early twentieth century; and this is the first translation available in English. First published in Vienna in 1930, it is a review of the achievement of Lissitzky's post-revolutionary compatriots in Russia, and an outline of his own program for future action.... The book is illustrated with photographs of modern architectural projects and some remarkable but little-known buildings from Russia in the 1920s's." - "Architectural Record" & quot; This book is a primary source for any full understanding of the origins of modern architecture in the early twentieth century; and this is the first translation available in English.
