Besides these 180 leading examples of Constructivist architecture in Moscow we included into the map some remarkable elements of Russian industrial art from the 1920s and 1930s. The four roundels refer to Soviet textile and porcelain design of 1920-1930 and their propaganda capacities celebrating industrialization, electrification, collective farming and aeronautics, announcing an era of a new type of human, trained by the overall mechanization of everyday life. Some of the patterns we used celebrate the work of Russian designers Lyubov Popova and Varvara Stepanova who helped pave the way for all modern day graphic designers as they created art with a purpose in hopes of bettering the society in which they lived.
