Documenting in detail an unrealized elevated office building designed in 1924 by Russian Constructivist Lissitzky (1890-1941) during his stay in Switzerland, this catalogue presents conceptual sketches, drawings, plans and models of the innovative structure along with several related drawings by Swiss architects Roth and Stam. Two illustrated essays discuss the impact of Russian avant-garde architecture on trends in Western Europe and describe the history of the Wolkenbugel project, the plans for the building's construction in Moscow, and its relationship to modern skyscraper design.
