SA was the main organ of the OSA Group or Organization of Contemporary Architects. It embraced the avant-garde approach to Russian architecture and its influence was felt worldwide. Under Ginzburg and Vesnin, Gan designed the entire magazine from cover to cover in the most inventive Constructivist manner. Ginzburg was one of the most influential Constructivist architects. He taught at VKhUTEMAS, founded with Vesnin the OSA and wrote the Constructivist architectural manifesto Stil i epokha (Style and Epoch), 1924. He fell out of favor in 1932 with the introduction of Social Realism as the official Soviet style. Vesnin was likewise an important Constructivist architect who also contributed set and costumes designs to the Kamernii Teatr.
