Selim Khan-Magomedov, a historian of Avant-garde architecture, called projects of Lazarus Khidekel “missing element in the Suprematism evolution from plane painting to architecture.” Lazarus Khidekel, a student of El Lissitzky and Kazimir Malevich from Vitebsk, who later became a professional architect, in 1920-1930s created projects of architecture of the future: the flying cities, towns on piers and residential space stations. Several projects from this period are presented by the Society of Lazarus Khidekel for the exhibition “Avant-garde and aviation” at Jewish Museum & Tolerance Center in Moscow.
