Constructivist architecture is an architectural movement that emerged in Russia during the early 20th century, particularly after the Russian Revolution of 1917. It is characterized by its emphasis on functionalism, geometric forms, and the use of industrial materials like steel and glass. Constructivist buildings often have bold and dynamic designs with a focus on practicality and efficiency. This architectural style was influenced by the social and political ideals of the time, seeking to create buildings that served the needs of the collective society. It has had a significant impact on modernist architecture and continues to influence contemporary design.
