Linked to the activities of a group of young architects disappointed in existing practice and developing a new artistic strategy, the “paper architecture” movement flourished in the 1980s. Form, style, construction, composition and function became an object of reflection and lexical elements enjoying a mobile and non-obligatory relationship with the material basis of architectural practice. Such works representing the “paper architecture” movement as the models of Yu. Avvakumov and his Agitarch group and the monumental watercolours of M. Filippov and N. Bronzova were acquired following the Forwards to the Past, Back to the Future exhibition held at the Russian Museum.
