Charles Jencks describes how the Soviets use constructivism as propaganda as they throughout the 1920s. This includes projects that try to re-imagine social housing and government infrastructure. He comments on the Stalinist reassertion of regimented efficiency toward public projects and how Stalin intertwined the movement with politics. He then goes on to discuss how Stalin began to react against the movements and its artists, causing its eventual decline.
