Shukhov Tower Foundation

www.shukhov.org

Established in 2003, the "Shukhov Tower" Foundation of Science, Culture and Art Development was created to preserve the legacy of the great architect and engineer Vladimir Grigorievich Shukhov (1853-1939).

He was the first in the world to use steel cables for the construction of buildings and towers, using a technique later taken up by architects such as Buckminster Fuller and Norman Foster. Shukhov was also the first to introduce hyperboloid steel structures to the world of architecture, inspiring the architectural style of many cutting-edge hi-tech developments of the 20th century.

Many of the creations of V. G. Shukhov have not been properly protected and are currently in a condition of slow decay. The Foundation's international experts, partners and volunteers regularly monitor the status of conservation of these structures.

In the spring of 2008, the Foundation intensified its efforts to attract the attention of the public and competent authorities to address the restoration of the Shukhov Tower in Shabolovka, Moscow, in a critical condition for more than twenty years. Today this masterpiece of world architecture is neither accessible for sightseeing or study: the perimeter around the structure is a prohibited area, surrounded by various federal departments. Publications prepared by the Foundation include proposals to allow free access to the space around the Shukhov tower in Moscow to tourists and residents through the creation of a landscape capable of achieving world heritage status. The Foundation's numerous activities include collaborations with the Lukoil Museum, the Rosneft Museum, the State Museum of Architecture, the Museum of Contemporary History of Russia and the Museum of Unique and Ancient Technologies in Myshkin, Yaroslavl.

For RKM_Save Urban Heritage the Shukhov Tower Foundation is responsible for database and communication activities in Moscow and for the guided tours that will take place in Moscow throughout the project.
