"The Melnikov House, a building designed by architect Konstantin Melnikov in Moscow for himself and his family (1927–1929), is an icon of the architectural avant-garde. The house was originally built as an experimental cylindrical house to test Konstantin Melnikov’s very own concept for the mass construction of housing. The original layout, elegant spatial arrangement and ingenious engineering techniques have made this masterpiece world famous.

This book gives a detailed account of its creation and history right through the 20th century, the transitional state from residential dwelling to museum, and the house´s current condition while still awaiting an in-depth survey and conservation work."
