Abstract

The work of Siberian architect A. D. Kryachkov was focused on the development of buildings resistant to exposure to severe Siberian climate. The article investigates the role of engineering and construction factors in formation of his ideas. The research is based on A. D. Kryachkov's publications and design documents and photos of his buildings constructed in the 1910s-1930s. Comparative analysis of the documents revealed that engineering and technical factors played the key role in his approach. He carefully studied the behavior of structural materials and structural elements in the cold climate conditions. The findings were then used in the design process. The buildings constructed according to his projects between 1920 and 1930 have preserved their original image for many decades. This fact makes the opinion that Siberian climate is incompatible with artistic and expressive architecture controversial.
