THE FIRST WORLD WAR AND SOVIET AVANT-GARDE IN ARCHITECTURE AND DESIGN


The article is devoted to the little-studied art and style forming role of the First World War (1914-1918) in the evolution of Russian avant-garde in architecture and design. Image visualisation and design experience gained by the 1920s generation over the war years influenced the spatial forms of early Constructivist architecture and design works. Noteworthy is certain similarity between the functional character of the prewar and war-period capital fortification plans and the functional plans and spaces of the tangible artworks of Soviet avant-garde. The author regards new warfare means as an artistic image for visualisation in postwar avant-garde architecture and design.

Key words: futurism, avant-garde, architecture, design, First World War
