    I’m sorry but the “Model of a section from Konstantin Melnikov’s legendary 1925 Soviet pavilion building at the Paris World Fair” is the fourth picture from top. the one now identified is part of the “El Lissitzky’s Soviet pavilion at the Pressa exhibition in Cologne, 1928″ like you could see here http://rosswolfe.files.wordpress.com/2014/03/index1.jpeg?w=370&h= and here http://rosswolfe.files.wordpress.com/2013/08/f-paris-exposition-des-arts-decoratifs-pavillon-de-urss.jpg?w=370&h=
