Architectural Designs of I. Leonidov

Ivan Leonidov’s three grandiose architectural designs were never brought to life still being a great source of inspiration for architects. Now you can explore them in full detail using the «live 3D markers» augmented reality technology.

The main project of Ivan Leonidov, which the architect worked on until his last days, was the magnificent «City of the Sun». Leonidov came up with this concept before the beginning of World War II. It combined two main projects of his life — the Lenin Institute and the Narkomtyazhprom Building. The «City of the Sun» was never brought to life, but its drafts represent all of Leonidov’s innovative ideas and serve as a source of inspiration for many architects.

Specifically for Autodesk forum (September 2010) we recreated all three designs within one application based on «living 3D markers»:

  • The Lenin Institute of Librarianship in Moscow;
  • The Columbus monument in Santo Domingo
  • The Narkomtyazhprom Building in Moscow.

Please follow this brief instruction to view them on your PC.
