Description

The Palace of Technology competition was begun in 1933. This entry by Samoylov and Yefomovich was not selected as the jurors felt it was 'was not a tribute to a constructivisim which was receding into the past, but rather an illustration of the “technocratic” character of the subject.' Taking their cue from traveling throughout western Europe, one sees several neoclassical symbols, in particular the archways recalling Paris' several bridges and it's open design, a technological innovation perfected during the neoclassical revival.
