Title of the articleOrigins and trends of Soviet modernism
Abstract.Problem statement. Modernism seems to be the most global style in the history of world culture, which embraced practically the entire XX century. The return of Soviet architecture to the global trends of the modern architecture met the main social needs of society, including the speediest solution to the housing problem. The purpose of this article is to study the historical prerequisites for the emergence of Soviet modernism, as well as the architectural trends that formed within this style. The purpose of the article is to expand the field of knowledge of the theory of architecture associated with the formation of Soviet modernism as a style, determining the significance of this period for the history of Russian architecture. Results. The analysis of theoretical studies made it possible to identify the basic prerequisites for the emergence of Soviet modernism as unique architectural style within the framework of the Russian architectural tradition. The interrelation of Soviet architecture with the social goals of the state and socially valuable postulates are revealed. Soviet modernism, born in the period of the «Khrushchev thaw», contributed to the revival of the ideas of the Soviet avant-garde. Conclusions. The significance of the obtained results for the architecture consists in revealing the main stylistic characteristics of Soviet modernism and the main architectural trends of this period. Soviet modernism, being formed in the global architecture tendencies, acquired its inherent characteristics, including thanks to the national diversity of the USSR, while remaining genetically related to the ideas of the Soviet avant-garde and constructivism.
