About This Item

Pan-American Union, 1930. Small folio, blue cloth with embossed gilt device on upper cover and gilt lettering. Slight wear at spine ends else bright and fresh. Profusely illustrated with photographs in the text (some in color) and two folding plans. Full page illustrations of the ten first-prize winners, ten others who received honorable mention and 86 other designs plus the winners of the first contest. Commentary on the designs by the U. S. Architect, Albert Kelsey, the technical advisor of the competition for the Christopher Columbus Memorial Lighthouse. Striking visionary work. Most interesting are the designs by the Russian Constructivist architects, Waldemar Tarasoff and Constantine Melnikoff, during the brief period (1922-1932) of Soviet modernist architecture..
