Viktor Vesnin

Viktor Aleksandrovich Vesnin was a Russian Soviet architect. His early works (1909-1915) follow the canon of Neoclassicist Revival; in 1920's, he and his brothers Leonid (1880-1933) and Alexander (1883-1959) emerged as leaders of Constructivist architecture, the Vesnin brothers.

After the crackdown on Constructivism in 1931-32 and until his death, Viktor Vesnin was the highest-ranked architect in Soviet system, heading the Union of Soviet architects and Academy of Architecture. As a lead architect for heavy construction, he supervised many industrial projects, but his own visionary drafts of this period never materialized.
