As people gather in the homes of friends and family during the holiday season, it’s easy to forget that many people may spend this time at local hospitals, health care facilities, and community support organizations. But these spaces don’t have to be bereft of holiday cheer, which is why Nemetschek Vectorworks is sponsoring the nationwide GINGERTOWN initiatives for the second year in a row: a one-of-a-kind program that brings together architects, engineers, and contractors across various cities to create communities of gingerbread houses for a good cause.

Earn 1 AIA LU and Decide if Konstantin Melnikov was a Constructivist, a Rationalist, or Both

Posted by Pete Hicks on 11/14/14 11:54 AM
The year is 1917; Russia has just pulled out of World War I, the last of the Tsars have been deposed, and Konstantin Melnikov walks out of architecture school, degree in hand, ready to make his mark on the world. The rapidly changing political, economic, and social landscape of the time was reflected in many forms of art, including architecture, whose practitioners rallied into two camps: the constructivists, who believed that buildings should exist solely to serve a function, and the rationalists, who argued for the place of idealism in the design process. Melnikov seems to defy this binary at every turn, creating projects that could fit into both categories and wouldn’t look out of place among the works of today’s “modern” architects. His visionary designs are dissected and analyzed in the first installment of Nemetschek Vectorworks’ Art In Architecture webinar series, “Melnikov: Early Sparks of Russian Iconic Architecture.” Read More
