Pushkin House celebrates the publication, for the first time in English, of Moisei Ginzburg’s Style and Epoch (1924). Alexei Ginzburg, grandson of the architect, will talk about the book, his grandfather’s theory, and the ongoing restoration of seminal Constructivist building – Narkomfin (Moscow) – of which Alexei is chief restoration architect.
Style and Epoch by Moisei Ginzburg, first published in 1924, was the architect’s key work; it became the philosophical basis for the Constructivist group of architects. This facsimile edition follows on from the successful publication of the author’s 1934 work Dwelling, also published by Ginzburg Design with Fontanka (2017).
Architect Alexei Ginzburg is currently working on the restoration of his grandfather’s famous Narkomfin building in Moscow (completed in 1932). As part of this project, Ginzburg Design has initiated the publication of Moisei Ginzburg’s four seminal publications on architecture and the built environment.
