Deutsch The Shukhov Tower Foundation


 
28.08.2016

On 28 August 2016 we mark the 163rd anniversary of the famous Russian engineer, architect, scientist and inventor Vladimir Shukhov.

His name is well-known in the global scientific community. Numerous books and documentary films are devoted to his work which in turn is being studied in prestigious universities all around the world.

Despite this, his landmark creation, the famous radio tower in the centre of Moscow, the engineering jewel of its time, still stands abandoned and falls further into disrepair and rusts away. In spite of numerous decrees from the Russian government, constant appeals from Russian and international public bodies and compliance with Russian laws, regulations and constitution, the officials and organizations responsible for the safekeeping and maintenance of this unique monument of world heritage continue to neglect their responsibilities.

With great sorrow we have to acknowledge that with every passing birthday of Vladimir Shukhov, he would have been able to observe the impending demise of his great creation.

Today, when we commemorate the anniversary of Vladimir Shukhov's birthday, we wish you all the best and express our deep gratitude for your continued support and assistance.

President of STF
Vladimir Shukhov
