Two young Russian architects, Stepan Liphart and Boris Kondakov, are trying to capture and revive the positive spirit of the early 1930s. From the Westerner's point of view, their projects bear an obvious resemblance to the famous Hugh Ferriss' sketches. Soviet? Thirties? Ferriss? All this calls for an instant stereotype: Totalitarian Art. But what if we just break away from all cliches and admit that there was a meeting point of Neo-Classic art and International style? A brief period when it seemed the two can merge together into something new, powerful and positive. Works of Boris Iofan, a spiritual father of the duo, can teach us that such a merger was possible. Too many decades have passed, too many wedding cakes and ugly boxes were built, but the hope is still alive. Soviet Art Deco is here again.
