#7 MODERN HERITAGES
Glimpses of today in visions of Russian Avant-garde architects
Why the talk is inspiring?
The future envisioned by avant-garde architects of the 1920s is our reality now. Social and technological developments have finally made their dreams viable. Most of the typologies created in the 1920s fit the demands of the today’s society, and this is the ground for the preservation of that heritage.
