This album is devoted to the architect Vladimir Antonovich Planson (1871, Vyatka –1950, San Francisco), who in 1900-1921 constructed a number of buildings in Vladivostok which are regarded now as architectural monuments. Using materials from the architect’s personal collection, which is stored at the Museum-Archive of the Russian Culture in San Francisco, the authors tell us about Planson’s life and his creative activities, as well as about the history of the construction of a number of buildings. Previously unknown documents, taken from Planson’s archives, allow us to establish his authorship regarding some constructions, which until recently were mistakenly attributed to other architects. Text and photo captions are in both Russian and English
