Abstract
John Hatch examines the friendship between Theo Van Doesburg and El Lissitzky, which was fuelled by a shared interest in scientific theories. Both moved from painting to architecture in seeking out a form best suited to conveying the spatiotemporal experiences phrased by Relativity, resulting in some remarkably innovative architectural designs and theories.
