Quick Reference

(1902–59). Russian architect, he was influenced by Vesnin, and was a figure in Constructivism. His unrealized project for a Lenin Institute, with glass-clad suspended elements and an elevated monorail communications network, looked forward to the kind of adaptable open-ended structures envisaged by Archigram, Koolhaas, and other late-C20 architects. His only significant built work was the landscaped amphitheatre and stairway for Ordzhonikidze Sanatorium, Kislovodsk (1937).
