Author: Lithuanian design studio Baklazanas created an avant-garde heritage map celebrating Constructivist architecture in Moscow
Lithuanian Nomadic design studio Baklazanas has designed a map of Constructivist Moscow, supporting the studio’s stance against demolition of the avant-garde architectural heritage in Russia’s capital.
Baklazanas launched the intricate avant-garde heritage map, which features 180 examples of Constructivist architecture in Moscow. Iconic buildings such as Melnikov House and Lenin’s Mausoleum are included, as well as lesser known residential buildings and constructivist quarters and settlements.
The Constructivist movement produced many pioneering and unique projects that impacted contemporary architecture during the Soviet period in the 1920s and 1930s.
Constructivist architecture was born out of the wider art movement, which used advanced technology and engineering with a Communist social purpose. It grew from Russian Futurism.
