Konstantin S Mel'nikov and the Construction of Moscow

Be the first to review this product

A monograph devoted to the great Russian architect who is considered one of the leading interpreters of the aesthetic and social ideals of Constructivism, the Soviet avant-garde architectural movement.
The volume offers a repositioning of Mel’nikov’s works within the context of the Moscow of the Twenties and Thirties.

It highlights his ideational (in the unrealised projects) and concrete (in those realised) contributions to the construction of contemporary Moscow through a selection of models, flanked by the original designs of the buildings, cartographic reconstructions of the city of Moscow and original photographs.
The essays explore in detail Mel’nikov’s biography, his professional education in the Twenties, Stuttgart’s architecture school and the avant-garde (1918-1945), Mel’nikov and his dialogue with the city, and works from the first half of the Twenties up to 1936.
The volume ends with the complete list of Mel’nikov’s works and an up-to-date bibliography.
