The first issue of the Soviet magazine Architecture of the USSR was published in July 1933. Over the next 59 years, it would feature all of the most famous architectural and urban planning projects in the Soviet Union. Here is a selection of the magazine’s covers—themselves contributing to the legacy of Soviet design.
Save for a few brief interruptions, Architecture of the USSR was in circulation from 1933 to 1992. Many issues of the magazine are now digitized and can be downloaded from the digital archives of Soviet journals or read online.
