Constructivist architecture was a form of modern architecture that flourished in the Soviet Union in the 1920s and early 1930s. It combined advanced technology and engineering with an avowedly Communist social purpose.
Constructivist architecture emerged from the wider constructivist art movement, which grew out of Russian Futurism.
Russian word "konstruktsiia" denotes a mode of thinking, a certain ordering of the processes of thought.
Constructivist art had attempted to apply a three-dimensional cubist vision to wholly abstract non-objective 'constructions' with a kinetic element.
