4to. 232 pp. Illustrated with black-and-white architectural drawings. Original printed boards. Board edges worn, spine restored, some internal foxing.

FIRST EDITION. Chernikov was known as the "Soviet Piranesi" for his highly innovative and influential futuristic architectural drawings. Just like his Italian predecessor, the Russian slyly commented on his own oppressive society through his art. Futurist, Suprematist and Constructivist principles can be traced throughout these proposed designs. Although he was recognized internationally as a significant modern architect, the Soviet authorities never fully embraced his "Formalist" concepts and few of his extraordinary buildings were ever realized.
