Russian and Soviet architecture
This article is dedicated to Russian and Soviet pavilions at world fairs of the first half of the 20th century, which is one of the most important topics of both history of architecture and international relations. The article brings to light unpublished episodes of Russian and Soviet participation at the international exhibitions. The pavilions were at the same time the screen and show-window of the country, which formed its image worldwide. The study is focused on their ideological role and realization aspects, analyzing previously unpublished and underexplored project materials and archival documents, with special attention to the interaction between the parties, cultural diplomacy, contacts with emigrants and local context.
