THREE COMPLETED PROJECTS OF Kh. Kh. CHALKHUSH'YAN IN ROSTOV-ON-DON AS A REFLECTION OF CHANGES IN THE SOVIET ARCHITECTURE OF THE PRE-WAR PERIOD
Architecton: Proceedings of Higher Education №1 (69) March, 2020
The article is dedicated to the creative activities of Kh.Chalkhush'yan, one of Rostov’s leading architects in the 1920-1930s. Three realized projects are used as an example to retrace the changes characteristic of the Soviet architectural urban planning activities over that period – from Constructivism to Post-Constructivism and Historicism. The article demonstrates how these changes were happening in Rostov-on-Don and how the architect’s creative method was changing along. The article draws attention to a gradual character of changes in Rostov’s architectural urban planning activities during the transition period of the mid-1930s; many projects carried both signs of a renascent traditionality and outgoing Constructivism. It is concluded that the radical and painful turn from Constructivism to the re-assimilation of historical heritage in Soviet architecture meant for many architects of the older generation a return to the familiar project method characteristic of the pre-revolutionary practice.
