Asnova [Assotsiatsiya Novykh Arkhitektorov; Rus.: Association of New Architects].

Russian architectural group active in Moscow from 1923 to 1932. It was founded by NIKOLAY LADOVSKY, VLADIMIR KRINSKY and NIKOLAY DOKUCHAYEV and was the USSR’s first avant-garde architectural association. Asnova intended to serve the new Soviet regime by establishing an architectural language based on economic and psychological efficiency. This Rationalist approach also attempted to secure an irrefutable, scientific foundation for the aesthetics of modern architecture.
