The Avant-Garde architecture tour

join!

28.01.2018
The October Revolution of 1917 has changed not only the political system in Russia but the social life and even the private life of people. The role of arts in the establishment of the new socialist country cannot be underestimated.

 We invite you to drive around Moscow and discover the masterpieces of  Russian Avant-Garde Architecture of the 1920s-1930s. We’ll talk about that flourishing period of creative ideas in Russian art and we will see such world famous constructivist buildings as  Melnikov’s house, the Narkomfin building, Le Corbusier’s Tsentrsouz building and others.
 
Many artists were eager to discover new language of arts that could describe the XX century – the century of automobiles, aircrafts and ferroconcrete constructions. Moreover, some artists believed that post-revolutionary art could not only describe the world but also change it through social-oriented architecture, design and new approaches to city-development.

This tour will draw attention to how and on what philosophical, technical and even romantic and revolutionary principles the whole of the constructivism was based. There will be a possibility to see both impressive and seemingly modest constructions, which gave birth to most findings in the functionalism of the late 20th century.
