Description

Boris Iofan is best known as the architect behind the Palace of the Soviets. Yet his style was not limited to the Socialist Clas­sicism that flourished under Stalin. Rath­er, Iofan’s architectural language evolved throughout his lifetime, from his eclecti­cist beginnings in Rome, to the grandeur of the wedding-cake style in the 1930s, to his incorporation of concrete panels under Khrushchev. This book presents a collec­tion of essays that chart the development of the architect’s variegated career that spanned nearly six decades.
