Charles Jencks discusses the early twentieth century Russian history, concentrating on causes of the Russian revolutions. The revolutionary artists and designers captured this charged social atmosphere through publications and art. Jencks describes typical motifs of Russian constructivism including primary forms, colors, typography, and imagery. He uses these examples to build his argument that constructivism leads from early cubism to the architecture of Le Corbusier.
