Academy of Construction and Architecture of the Ukrainian SSR
Academy of Construction and Architecture of the Ukrainian SSR (Akademiia budivnytstva i arkhitektury Ukrainskoi RSR). Established in 1956 in Kyiv on the basis of the Academy of Architecture of the Ukrainian SSR (founded in 1945) and of a number of other research institutes. From 1956 to 1964 the academy co-ordinated all research conducted in Ukraine in the field of construction and architecture, and trained research personnel. Many of the results of this research were applied in the Ukrainian SSR postwar reconstruction plans. The academy was headed by a presidium. Its presidents were Anatolii Komar (1956–9) and P. Bakuma (1960–4); the permanent secretary was Ivan Lytvynov, who also edited its journal, Visnyk Akademiï budivnytstva i arkhitektury URSR. In 1964 the academy was replaced by a number of other architectural research institutes.
