The Printing plant by El Lissitzky



The Printing plant of "Ogonyok" magazine designed by El Lissitzky is likely to be the only extant building based on the blueprints of this master. Located at 55°46′38″N 37°36′39″E / 55.777277°N 37.610828°E / 55.777277; 37.610828 17, 1st Samotechny Lane, it is Lissitzky's sole tangible work of architecture. It was commissioned in 1932 by Ogonyok magazine to be used as a print shop. In June 2007 the independent Russky Avangard foundation filed a request to list the building on the heritage register.

All classical buildings have similar elements of decor. The Europeans, Russians and Americans used the Roman experience.

I voted for MSU because:
1) This is working building with the university rooms, a dormitory for students and apartments for teachers;
2) This is beautiful symbiosis of the old and new architecture styles (Kremlin towers + Soviet Empire).

Actually Seven Sisters, Ostankino and Shukhov TV-towers, Metro Metro stations can be named as Soviet architecture.

Gosplan Garage, Konstantin Melnikov, 1936

This garage is said to be a late Constructivist building that borders on Futurist. It is still used as a garage and repair shop today.
