ZODCHIY (The Architect), an architectural and technical art journal of the St. Petersburg Architects Society, published in 1872-1917 (until 1901 circulating as a monthly, later as a weekly journal). One issue came out in 1924. The editorial office was located at 83 Moika River Embankment. Among the journal's contributors were architect I. А. Merz (its first editor), I. S. Kitner, V. V. Evald, N. I. de Rochefort, М. F. Geissler, L. N. Benois. It published articles on architectural issues, construction art, technical education, construction legislation, urban development, history of architecture, programs of architectural contests, information on technical art exhibitions and society reports etc. The journal's position mirrored the changes which took place in the stylistics of the architectural process - from the Eclecticism to the Art Nouveau and Neo-Classicism. In 1881-1903 it came out with a monthly supplementary edition Nedelya Stroitelya. The year 1884 saw the release of an album on the Holy Resurrection Cathedral designs.
