The First All-Union Congress of Architects SU19370616-S-EN.v01

USSR 1937 - USSR 1937 - The First All-Union Congress of Architects
English Text




The Union of Soviet Architects, formed in 1932, held its first congress in June 1937 in Moscow. In Soviet architecture, the preoccupation of the 1930s was the creation of a new ‘Socialist city’ centered on the remodeling of Moscow. Architecture played a central role in Stalinist political culture. While the practical advantages of reordering and modernizing the capital city were no doubt a factor in launching the project for a new Moscow, the symbolic function of its ‘transformation’ was paramount. The plans for a reconstructed new Moscow functioned as the best practical guide to what Socialist Realism might mean in architecture.
