Note on styles[edit]

I removed architects' styles and strongly urge not to add them. Rationale(s):

  • Inconsistency in style vocabulary, imperfect correlation between Russian and English-language terminology (see Talk:Constructivist architecture);
  • Eclecticists like Leon Benois or Alexander Pomerantsev can claim half a dozen original styles each; an architect with six styles listed will appear more impressive than a pure baroque master;
  • Stylistic crossovers (baroque-neoclassicism, neoclassicism-eclecticism) etc. are too delicate to be pressed into a simple list. NVO (talk) 22:47, 31 May 2009 (UTC)

Reshaping the list[edit]

I am going to rework this list and make it look like the List of Russian inventors or List of Russian artists. So, as a first step, I remove here all the red links.

That's it. If the articles on these architects appear, they maybe added onto the list.

The following architects have an articles on them, but not enough material and illustrations:
