  1. J.St. abandoned (for the most part) the communist principles of low key utility for an opulence and grandeur more befitting the Tsars or western capitalism. The show was important to him.

  2. Constructivism kids. The architectural style an out growth of the Bauhaus movement from Germany. It was experimented with in the Soviet Union until Stalin consolidated all artists including architects into artist unions. You’ll also find one of Le Corbusiers buildings in central Moscow http://www.galinsky.com/buildings/tsentrosoyuz/index.html
