Imagine Moscow: Architecture Propaganda Revolution

Imagine Moscow brings together an unexpected cast of ‘phantoms’ – architectural monuments of a vanished world of the Soviet Union that survive in spite of never being realised, and despite their immaterial and elusive relation to reality.

Marking the centenary of the Russian Revolution, Imagine Moscow: Architecture, Propaganda, Revolution explores Moscow as it was envisioned by a bold generation of architects in the 1920s and early 1930s. Featuring rarely seen material, this book – and the exhibition of the same title – portrays an idealistic vision of the Soviet capital that was never realised. Focusing on six unbuilt architectural landmarks, the book explores how these schemes reflected changes in everyday life and society following the revolution. Large-scale architectural plans, models and drawings are placed alongside propaganda posters, textiles and porcelain, contextualising the transformation of a city reborn as the new capital of the USSR and the international centre of socialism. The book also includes essays by Richard Anderson, Jean-Louis Cohen and Deyan Sudjic, which address a range of important themes in early Soviet architecture that remain relevant today. This book accompanies Imagine Moscow: Architecture, Propaganda, Revolution open at the Design Museum 15 March 2017 – 4 June 2017  Pages: 159 Dimensions:18 x 12.5 cm

Photographer Christopher Herwig first noticed the unusual architecture of Soviet-era bus stops during a 2002 long-distance bike ride from London to St. Petersburg. Challenging himself to take one good photograph every hour, Herwig began to notice surprisingly designed bus stops on otherwise deserted stretches of road Twelve years later, Herwig had covered more than 18,000 miles in 14 countries of the former Soviet Union, travelling by car, bike, bus and taxi to hunt down and document these bus stops The result is an astonishing variety of styles and types across the region, from the strictest Brutalism to exuberant whimsy Soviet Bus Stops is the most comprehensive and diverse collection of Soviet bus stop design ever assembled, including examples from Kazakhstan, Turkmenistan, Uzbekistan, Kyrgyzstan, Tajikistan, Ukraine, Moldova, Armenia, Abkhazia, Georgia, Lithuania, Latvia, Belarus and Estonia Dimensions: 20.1 x 2.5 x 16.5cm 191 pages
