Two Volumes of Projects from the Faculty of Architecture at the Akademiia Khudozhestv (Leningrad Academy of the Arts)
Two collected anthologies of papers and projects from the architecture department, comprising volumes II and III of a series: II. Sbornik: Kompozitsinnykh Rabot Studentov, 1936, 154 pp., covering works produced and designed from 1928 to 1930; and III. Sbornik Studencheskikh Rabot Arkhitekturnogo Fakul'teta IZhSiA VAKh, 1937, 116 pp., covering works designed from 1932 to 1934. Profusely illustrated throughout with scale models, floor plans, fa├žades, elevations, drawings, and maps. Vol. II with pen notation to title page, some minor soiling, spine shaken. Vol. III with minor toning, spine shaken. 8vo. Orig. printed wrpps., Vol. II with staining to covers, minor spotting, some losses along spine, rubber stamp marks to back cover. Vol. III with sunning, abrasions especially along edges, minor soiling. Leningrad (Izdanie Vserossiiskoi) 1936-1937. The initial predecessor of the Academy of Arts was founded in 1757 as the Akademiia Trekh Znatneishikh Khudozhestv - Zhivopisi, Skul'ptury i Arkhitektury (Academy of the Three Distinguished Arts - Painting, Sculpture, and Architecture), and was reorganized in 1764 as the Imperatorskaia Akademiia Khudozhestv (Imperial Academy of Arts). In 1918 the Academy was abolished and its holdings were transferred to other institutions. In the 1933, the All-Russian Academy of Arts (Vserossiiskaia Akademiia Khudozhestv) was opened in Leningrad as an educational institution. The projects illustrated in these two volumes are interesting examples of 1930's avant-garde Russian architecture. Very scarce; as of January 2018, WorldCat locates a single holding of only Volume III in a North American institution.
