Neoclassicism of 1910/1914 as a manifestation of the rise of the early 20th century architecture
The lecture is devoted to the characteristics of Russian neoclassical architecture in the 1900s/1910s. A new trend opposing itself to eclecticism and art nouveau becomes the focus of attention. The formation process of an architectural style is studied against the background of the development of art and culture in the early 20th century Russia. This new process originated from the programme of retrospectivism. The role of workers of culture, art and architecture in this process is also studied. Concepts of retrospectivism and its main branch focused on the classical heritage of the antiquity, Renaissance and the 18th/early 19th century Russian classicism are studied. Works of the following architects are analysed: I. A. Fomin, V. A. Shchuko, A. E. Belogrud et al. They conveyed in their works the cohesion between the periods of time, the past and the future.
