Constructivist architecture was a form of modern architecture that flourished in the Soviet Union in the 1920s and early 1930s. It combined advanced technology and engineering with an avowedly Communist social purpose. Although it was divided into several competing factions, the movement produced many pioneering projects and finished buildings, before falling out of favour around 1932. Its effects have been marked on later developments in architecture.

After producing letters of my typeface out of cement I have noticed a connection with a geometrical and fragmental architecture of constructivist buildings, therefore decided to use constructivism as a starting point.
