Moscow, Russia, 25/04/2013..The cylindrical Melnikov House [1927-1929], the most famous construction by Soviet avant-garde architect Konstantin Melnikov, in central Moscow. The house, which is slowly collapsing, is the subject of a complex dispute between the architect's grand-daughter Ekaterina, who lives there and wants to turn it into a museum, her sister Elena, and businessman Sergei Gordeev.

I was privileged to be shown around the Narkomfin Building (1928) in Moscow by Alexai Ginzburg, grandson of its architect Moisei Ginzburg. It’s in a sorry state of repair but the spirit of communal living is still very much in evidence and the influence on Le Corbusier is unquestionable.
