This is a collection of 2 bound volumes and 58 separate issues of supplements to ‘Architectural Newspaper’, the main periodical of Union of Soviet Architects before the WWII. Four-page illustrated supplement was published in 1934-1939, occasionally with subtitle ‘Projects and Constructions’.
Print run varies 13 500-20 000 copies. Design of early issues (until 1936) was produced by V. Ninemiagi, later ones were created by D. Aranovich.
The edition contains large photographs, schemes, designs and models of constructivist and post-constructivist structures in different Soviet cities, built or never brought to life. Projects by architects I. and P. Golosov, N. Kolli, I. Zholtovsky, K. Melnikov, A. Kapustina, S. Andrievsky, A. Vlasov, V. Kokorin, etc. were included in the magazine. Among them are plans of Moscow metro stations, civil constructions, living buildings, Gorky and Sokolniki parks, city squares, highways and the whole districts. Small captions or even texts are placed as well. Graduate projects of architects were regularly published. Often, the entire issue was devoted to a separate topic. For example, no. 71 for 1935 features designs of TASS Agency building created by I. Golosov, N. Kolli, S. Andrievsky and G. Glushchenko. Another issue (#9 for 1936) shows projects of Moscow embankments, including B. Iofan’s model of Lenin Hills area up to the Palace of Soviets. The issue no. 21 for 1937 contains competition projects of a lighthouse-monument to Lenin created by N. Trotsky, J. Langbard, L. Rudnev and others. The memorial was supposed to build in Leningrad Port but wasn’t realized.
The periodical covered early years of the grandiose Stalinist reconstruction of Moscow. As it published designs of Architectural Workshops of Moscow City Council, it therefore held the information on which group of architects was entrusted with planning of certain Moscow district.

Most issues of 1935 and 1937 are located in Yale University, most issues of 1935-1939 are in Getty Institute, some issues of 1936-1939 are in Columbia University.
