Iakov (or Yakov) Chernikhov was a well-known constructivist architect and graphic designer, called by some the "Soviet Piranesi" due to his prolific output. During his lifetime, he created around 17,000 drawings and projects. His volumes on architectural design published between 1927 and 1933 are often considered to be amongst the most innovative of their time, with this volume thought to be his most interesting and important work and one of the finest books ever published on modern architecture. The other titles he produced during this period include: The Art of Graphic Representation, The Construction of Architectural and Machine Forms, and Fundamentals of Contemporary Architecture.
