Szymon Syrkus ‘Architecture Opens up Volume’
Machine Age Exposition New York 1927

” THE NEW LAWS OF
ARCHITECTURE

are based on a heroic composition of communi-

DESTROY VOLUME ONCE FOR ALL.

 


 

 


 


 

CIAM 7 – Bergamo 1945, Helena Syrkus
Architecture, You and Me: The Diary of a Development, Sigfried Giedion, 1958
