About Kosmograd Newsfeed
This is the latest version of the Kosmograd Newsfeed, which has been published since 2005 by Martin Gittins.
The main focus of the blog is architecture and the city, viewed through the lens of Soviet Constructivism, and encompassing themes such as branding and city self-image, Suprematism, disurbanism, space travel, edgelands, borders, landscapes, drosscapes, virtual realities, representations.
I am also a sucker for axonometrics, hexagons and space planes.
About Marty here.
I know it's been around for a while now, but I couldn't mention Tatlin's tower without referencing the amazing animation Tower Bawher by Theodore Ushev. In a hyperkinetic homage to Soviet Constructivism, a tower is built, set to the strident score of "Time, Forward', by Georgy Sviridov.
While there are clips of the animation available on YouTube, the best quality version can be found on the Canadian National Film Board Animation Day site.
There's also a great interview with Ushev here.
