A Five Year Plan For Chess

We must finish once and for all with the neutrality of chess. 
We must condemn once and for all the formula 'chess for the sake of chess', like the formula 'art for art's sake'. 
We must organize shockbrigades of chess-players, and begin immediate realization of a Five-Year Plan for chess.” 
Nikolai Krylenko, quoted in Robert Conquest, The Great Terror: A Reassessment



Friedrich Froebel - Fifth Gift - Circa 1900

 Joseph Hartwig - Bauhaus Chess Set - 1922


Moshe Safdie - Six Module Component System - 1968
