Summary/Abstract: The paper considers the design of social reality based on the combination of non-classical and traditional pictures of the world in the works of P.A. Florenskii, the avant-garde artist. It has been demonstrated that P.A. Florenskii tried to synthesize ideological dominants of the avant-garde, revolutionism in all spheres of the human existence, contemporary technological and scientific achievements (especially as concerns intuitionistic and cognitive orientation) with conservatism, criticism of the civilization of that time, desire for structuring, search for the universal center, hierarchy, and appeal to the past (Pythagorean-Platonic metaphysics), as well as with the hopes for human renewal and enjoyment of personal freedoms in the authoritarian society.
