Jean-Marc Ibos and Myrto Vitart present a cultural center in the west of France. They document a competition for a library defined by the relationships with an existing library and a new district in the city. They present their effort to subvert the placement of the traditional elements of a church in a project located in La Defense. Ibos and Vitart discuss an extension to a Beaux Arts building in Lille, where they were asked to
create a relationship between past and present.

Charles Jencks answers questions about Russian constructivism. He describes both Marx, Lenin and related theories matured into Stalinism. Jencks defends his idea of history as “linear pluralities,” and how several movements are feeding and borrowing from constructivism and the culture of, then, contemporary Russia.
