This project is currently underway.

 

Depicted is the first of two preliminary drawings centered on the work of Boris Iofan; awarded the title “People’s Architect of the U.S.S.R.” following the re-design of his winning proposal for the Palace of the Soviets competition in the early 1930s. Entries Iofan defeated included a submission by the Vesnin Brothers as well as proposals by Le Corbusier, Mies Van der Rohe, and Walter Gropius. The competition is often described as the event which signaled the death of the Great Experiment and the beginning of the era of Socialist Realism in art.

 

The 19XX house is a monument to ego, international strife, secrecy, and the sudden end of the conscious re-articulation of the Soviet identity.
