    Quizzical Pursuit
    —The Architecture Puzzler

    Created by Dave Guadagni

    Solution to Last Week's Puzzler
    Architecture Puzzler #328

    Question

    Did the Russian revolution during the early part of the 20th century stimulate or inhibit architecture?

    Answer

    According to Russian architects Alexandra Pavlova and Yuri Grigoryan, the Russian revolution stimulated all art forms including architecture, the constructivist architecture of Ivan Leonidov and Konstantin Melnikov in particular. Ten years later, however, socialism stifled this initiative and repressed the creative process for decades. Pavlova and Grigoryan believe there is now a resurgence of architecture in Russia: "Architecture is like a flower that is blossoming again"
