the wolkenbügel
"for a new, rational architecture"

The Wolkenbügel contradicted America's vertical building style, because the building expanded horizontally in the air to save space on the ground. Lissitzky published an article about his skyscraper project in 1926 in the only issue of the Moscow-based architectural review ASNOVA (The Association of New Architects). He wrote articles for both ASNOVA and the German art journal Das Kunstblatt in which he proposed a new "rational architecture" for East and West that would involve modern architects and "rationalized labor" joining forces with science and high technology.
