Pack of 3 magnets representing Russian avantgarde architectural designs – the Melnikov House, Krutikov’s Flying City Project, and Malevich’s Dwelling project, all thought in between the 1920s and 1930s.
Konstantin Melnikov, Georgy Krutikov and Kazimir Malevich were, in different measures but on the same field of architecture, artists who worked and executed ahead of their time.
These designs prove the dynamism and futurism that artists breathed during the 20s and 30s, even in Eastern Europe and Russia. The already advanced construction of the New York City as we know it today (the Empire State, for example, was finished in 1931), the International Exhibitions seeing feats like Mies van der Rohe’s German Pavilion, or the 1929 Columbus Memorial entries by fellow Soviet Era designers show this tendency to look into a new form of somewhat extra-terrestrial design.
From Beamalevich’s collection of magnets inspired by 20th-century art and architecture.
