Sovremennaya arkhitektura [Современная архитектура; Modern Architecture] was a journal published by the Constructivists in OSA from 1926-1930.

The journal was edited by Moisei Ginzburg and the Vesnin brothers, until Roman Khiger took over in 1928, and was throughout the leading architectural avant-garde journal in the USSR. From February 1926 to the end of 1930, six numbers of the journal were published annually. It provided an outlet for architectural theory and design for both Soviet and Western European architects, pursuing a distinctly internationalist program of design. The journal shut down toward the beginning of 1931, replaced by the All-Union journal Soviet Architecture, which gradually shifted in the direction of neoclassicism. [1]
