For international architecture critics, Russia is unmapped territory. Contemporary architecture in Moscow, St Petersburg and regional Russia, however, is well worth exploring in depth. The over fifty architecture projects and designs in this volume New Revolution RUSSIAN ARCHITECTURE showcase a Russia that is moving from its Soviet past and blazing new trails in architecture. Based on their extensive inside knowledge of the Russia architectural scene, the two authors have assembled a selection of striking, unusual or typical buildings in five chapters covering International Style in Russia, Russian Roots, Post-Soviet Modernism and Russian Nostalgia. Teo introductory essays discuss Russian architecture since 1995 in the international context.
