contributed by Jose_Garcia

The first sketch for this building was made by Konstantin Melnikov. Later the project passed on to Ilya Golosov, who made his own design. Golosov's design concept on Zuev Workers' Club was a dynamic composition with a main volume, the glazed cylinder housing the main staircase on the corner, and a set of smaller volumes subordinate to the main one. Zuev Workers' Club became an iconic work of the soviet constructivist thanks to the picture of the glazed cylinder moving up and breaking through the massive volume of the third floor. The club houses two auditoriums, 850 and 200 seats, and eight small meeting rooms. Nowadays the building keeps using on the original function as theatre and social centre. Unfortunately, over the years it has experienced some changes that distort the original composition: some volumes, as the second floor glazed balcony on the side façade and the advertisement's marquee on the corner of the first level, have been removed and many bays have been bricked.
