First Edition

Tijana Vujosevic

  • The first book about the role of architecture in constructing the Soviet 'New Man' following the October Revolution

  • Establishes unique connections between disparate fields DS architecture, statistics, theatre, popular press, literature, bureaucracy
  • Explores how grand political ideas play out in the domain of the intimate and the quotidian and the idiosyncrasies in 'personal' interpretations of communism and modern political ideals
