Illustration I Architecture I 2017
It was alongside the rise of the Soviet era when the Russian avant-garde movement started one of the most influential creative revolutions in the 20th century. The Constructivists, forming part of this wave, rewrote the history of art, design and architecture and their legacy still remains contemporary.
The Constructivist by Zupagrafika allows you to playfully shape your own avant-garde community with geometrical forms inspired by seminal examples of Russian constructivist architecture erected between the early 1920s and mid -1930s, such as: Melnikov House, Kirov Town Hall or Nikolaev`s House.
The kit is designed especially for children and their parents to engage in a playful, interactive tour around the constructivist world of forms and colours, allowing them to practice their spatial imagination. Contains 4 press-out comrades to assemble without glue or scissors. Includes an educative note on Russian avant-garde architecture and easy to follow instructions.
“Objects in our hands should also be equals, also be comrades...”
— Alexandr Rodchenko, Paris 1925.
