Russian avant-garde architecture of the revolutionary era stands as a unique and influential chapter in the history of modern architecture. Conceived during the tumultuous period from 1917 to 1934, when political and social revolution converged with radical revolution in the arts, much of the work-structurally daring and often utopian- was never built. It is now known principally through powerful and vividly executed drawings that are subject of the book. Illustrations include works by Ivan Leonidov the Vesnin brothers, Konstantin Melnikov, Moisei Ginzberg, and some thirty other architects. 143 pp. Published in 1990 and edited by Catherine Cooke and text by Stuart Wrede and I.A. Kazus, this rare book from MoMA Publications is available in extremely limited quantities. Each book from this special selection has been stored for decades in MoMA’s warehouse. MoMA’s award-winning publications program has been an integral part of the Museum’s mission since its founding in 1929. These exhibition- and collection-related titles are renowned for their high production values.
