LECTURE: HOW TO LOVE THE CONTEMPORARY ARCHITECTURE. GUIDELINES FOR ARCHITECTURAL FLOWS OF THE 20 CENTURY
This crazy XX century brought to the field of architecture almost more than all previous eras. Architectural modernism appears, the focus is on function and design. But along with it there are many other directions in which we will understand. At this lecture you will understand:
- what tremendous innovations lie in the architecture of modernity?
- where did the architectural avant-garde come from and why it can not be called constructivism?
- what is really hidden behind the notion of Soviet modernism?
- and why even "Luzhkov" architecture should be treated with respect?
