A team of graduates of the University of Western Australia/ALVA realised these beautiful models of significant buildings of the Soviet Constructivism as part of their 5th year work. Each student was asked to select a building which encapsulates a significant theoretical position in architectural history, to build a model and to write a critical analysis of the treatise or manifesto from which the built form is derived.
