An update on the Modernist Architecture Archive/Database I discussed a couple posts ago. I’ve begun work on it, and have uploaded almost half of the documents I intend to include. Only a few of the Russian ones are up yet, but I’m hoping to post them over the next couple days. There are many more on the way.
Over the next couple weeks, I’m planning to post a flurry of full-text books and articles from the annals of modernist architectural and aesthetic theory. After they’re all up, I’m going to catalog it so that it’s easily searchable. They’re all going to be translated primary source documents that (at least to my knowledge) aren’t already up on the web. With the Russian texts, I’m going to post the Russian along with my own translations, which will be forthcoming. A lot of this material has never been translated. All non-Russian sources are translated by someone else or were originally written in English.
