''Brodsky and Utkin...began producing visionary schemes in response to a bleak professional scene in which only artless and ill-conceived buildings, diluted through numerous bureaucratic strata and constructed out of poor materials by unskilled laborers, were being erected - if anything.''

Lois E Nesbitt conjures up the world of the struggling architect in 1980's Moscow in her good, surprisingly critical, introduction to her 'Brodsky & Utkin The Complete Works'.
