The jubilee of the V.G.Shukhov technical university in Belgorod. On September 18 Vladimir Fyodorovich Shukhov, President of the “Shukhov tower” Foundation took part in the celebration of the 50th anniversary of the Vladimir Grigorievich Shukhov Belgorod state technical university. Before the beginning of festivities V.F. Shukhov together with his daughter Sofia visited Graivoron, the town where the great V.G. Shukhov was born. The main purpose of the visit to Graivoron was to discuss the idea of creating the Shukhov museum which was put forward by the administration of the area.
The museum of V.G. Shukhov in Graivoron will be independent, not created on the basis of a school museum or a museum of local lore. Vladimir Fyodorovich discussed the project of creating the museum with Alexander Golovin, head of the Graivoron area local government. During the dialog the two parties agreed on the location of the future museum and also on the coming celebration of the 155th anniversary of V.G. Shukhov next year. The construction of museum is planned to start by this date. One of the projects under consideration resembles the model of “Shukhov” tower. Belongings from the personal collection of Shukhov family will make up the heart of the exposition. Partly the materials will come from the archive of the Academy of Sciences and other archives.
