Soviet Constructivism at ALVA

Daily Icon reviews this amazing student exhibition covering Russian Constructivism. “Recent graduates of the University of Western Australia have exhibited recent work, Soviet Constructivism. Each student selects a building which encapsulates a significant theoretical position in architectural history. In 2010 the Soviet Avant Garde of constructivism was picked as the epoch of exploration. A model of the chosen example will be made to an agreed scale, which will be accompanied by a written paper of not more than 2000 words. The written component is to be a critical analysis of the treatise or manifesto from which the built form is derived. The critical analysis also serves as a reference point for the realization of three dimensional forms of models.”

I love the models. Excellent stuff.

More after the jump.
