Boris Iofan: Architect behind the Palace of the Soviets, Paperback / softback Book

Boris Iofan: Architect behind the Palace of the Soviets Paperback / softback


Boris Iofan is best known as the architect behind the Palace of the Soviets.

Yet his style was not limited to the Socialist Clas-sicism that flourished under Stalin.

Rath-er, Iofan's architectural language evolved throughout his lifetime, from his eclecti-cist beginnings in Rome, to the grandeur of the wedding-cake style in the 1930s, to his incorporation of concrete panels under Khrushchev.

This book presents a collec-tion of essays that chart the development of the architect's variegated career that spanned nearly six decades.
