Join longtime friend of the SAH/SCC, John G. Ellis, FAIA for a very personal trip down memory lane behind the iron curtain in 1968…a personal architectural pilgrimage to find the works of Alvar Aalto and the Russian Constructivist architects.

In the summer of 1968, Ellis (not to be confused with the former SAH/SCC board member and architectural photographer, John Ellis) and his student colleagues at the department of Architecture at the University of Cambridge, were inspired by visiting lecturer Berthold Lubetkin (1901-1990) to visit Russia and see the work of the Constructivists such as Konstantin Melnikov (1890-1974) and Vladimir Shukhov (1853-1939).
