LOSPK Sporting Palace and Palace of Culture: the authorship, construction time and continuance in compositional techniques








The article presents the history of the multifunctional “Sporting Palace” (constructed in 1910-1911) and its reconstruction of the later period. On the base of the survived project documentation, the authorship of the design is specified (S. G. Ginger), which allows to correct the mistake in the attribution of the building (earlier, some researchers had exaggerated the role of the architect A. E. Belogrud in development of the building design).The paper shows the continuance in the function and compositional techniques at rebuilding of the LOSPK Palace of Culture according to the design of the architects E. A. Levison and V. O. Munts. As a result, the academic community receives the newly revealed architectural drafts and images.
