The Melnikov House
“The Melnikov House, a building designed by architect Konstantin Melnikov in Moscow for his family (1927–1929), is an icon of the architectural avant-garde. The house was originally built as an experimental cylindrical house to test out Konstantin Melnikov’s very own concept of mass construction of residential estates. This book covers the house in its current condition – during its transformation from a family home to the State Melnikovs Museum.
