Boris Iofan is best known as the architect behind the Palace of the Soviets. Yet his style was not limited to the Socialist Classicism that flourished under Stalin. Rather, Iofan's architectural language evolved throughout his lifetime, from his eclecticist beginnings in Rome, to the grandeur of the wedding-cake style in the 1930s, to his incorporation of concrete panels under Khrushchev. This book presents a collection of essays that chart the development of the architect's variegated career that spanned nearly six decades.
