This fascinating book charts the dazzling trajectory of Russian avant-garde architecture during the brief but intense period of design and construction that took place fromc. 1922 to 1935. Fired by the radical new language of Constructivist artists, such architects as Konstantin Melnikov,Moisei Ginsburg and the Vesnin brothers produced designs whose innovative style embodied the energy and optimismof the new Soviet Socialist state. The architectural photographer Richard Pare has spent the last fifteen years documenting the remains and ruins of these iconic structures.His spectacular large-scale photographs are juxtaposed with vintage photographs, contemporary periodicals and numerous drawings and paintings by such Constructivist artists asMalevich, Tatlin, Popova and Lissitsky,making this book essential reading for all who are interested in the history of twentieth-century architecture, Constructivist art and Soviet-era Russia.
