29 October - 22 January. The Royal Academy of Arts dedicates an exhibition to Russian avant-garde architecture from about 1922 to 1935.
Inspired by the Constructivist art movement, Russian architects began designing innovative structures reflecting the energy and optimism of the new socialist state.
Artists such as Kazimir Malevich, Vladimir Tatlin and Liubov Popova were to the forefront of the movement, while European artists like Le Corbusier and Erich Mendelsohn were also influential.
The exhibition displays large-scale photographs of extant buildings alongside Constructivist drawings and paintings, vintage photographs and publications.
As part of the show, a reconstruction of Vladimir Tatlin
