CA: Contemporary Architecture 1926-1930
During a critical period in Russian architecture (1926-1930), this important publication presented modern architecture to the general public. Through it the names and works of Ivan Leonidov, Moses Ginzburg, the Vesnin brothers and many other distinguished figures in architecture became widely known. Active at the dawn of the era of avant-garde, they characterised an uncompromising attitude to new trends in Russian and international art and architecture. The historical value of the information to be found in these pages has grown over time and now Soviet Russia’s architectural world is again available. Beautifully presented and an example of early graphic design, this series belongs on the book shelves of all architects, architectural researchers and scholars, and all those interested in the history of Russian architecture. It also makes a unique gift.
