'The Construction of Architectural and Machine Forms' was Chernikov's teoretically most powerful book. He saw the Machine as the embodiment of constructive principles in their purest form, and therefore accorded a central role in modern architecture. He also formulated the fundamental laws of such an approach, illustrated with numerous imaginative designs. But far from idolising the machine, Chernikhov regarded the constructive principle as a natural phenomenon inherent to the organisation of life in all its diverse forms. "Unlike many architects, who had vulgarised the art of architecture in their passion for machinery, his way of glorifying the machine was a subordination of it to the laws of art, not the other way around" (Cooke 1983: p. 69). Senkevitch 206.
