Pods, Slabs and Ribbons
My paper on the CIAM for All Planned Out is now up at The Measures Taken. The images (mostly from two essential and out of print books, the brilliant Town and Revolution by Anatole Kopp and Pioneers of Soviet Architecture by Selim Khan-Magomedov, as well as a few from Karel Teige's Minimum Dwelling) were often scans of photocopies of copies, hence the scragginess - which was not intended to give it a worn, hauntological quality, honest. The pic above is of the Kirov Town Hall in Leningrad, meanwhile, designed by one Noi Trotsky in 1932. Pods for all!
