Николай Митурич, ленинградский архитектор
The book is dedicated to the Leningrad architect Nikolai Alexandrovich Miturich (1891–1973), whose work has so far remained virtually unexplored in Russian historiography. His long and incredibly rich creative career will be a discovery for anyone interested in Russian art of the first half of the 20th century. Miturich took part in the most important events in the history of the Leningrad architectural school during the first post-revolutionary decades. His legacy is very diverse: from park kiosks and sports pavilions to Palaces of Culture and theater buildings. This book contains unique materials from the architect’s personal archive. For the first time, more than 100 documents are published: photographs, architectural projects, furniture sketches, theatrical stage designs, as well as a diary and drawings created during his trip to the battle front during the First World War.
