12.09.2006 The international expertise of preservation and protection of constructions by V.G. Shukhov in Nizhniy Novgorod region
Shukhov’s heritage in the Nizhniy Novgorod region. The work of the section of the international scientific-industrial forum “Great Rivers’2005” / ICEF “The preservation of cultural heritage in the basins of great rivers” in Nizhniy Novgorod ended with a “round table” under the name of “The phenomenon of engineer Vladimir Shukhov”.
Among the constructions of V.G.Shukhov preserved in the Nizhniy Novgorod region the most valuable are the world’s single hyperboloid support of the NIGRES electric main on the Oka River bank near Dzerzhinsk, the latest and the most perfect of Shukhov’s high-rise constructions, and the world’s first lattice steel shell of double curvature – the sail-type roof of the metallurgical plant’s workshop in Vyksa.
The work of the forum’s section was headed by the Professor of the UNESCO sub-faculty of the Nizhniy Novgorod architectural-construction University Tatjana Pavlovna Vinogradova. The reports were made by the well-known scientists and specialist. The following people were among them:
— Doctor Rainer Graefe, Professor, Director of the Institute of the constructional history and the protection of architectural memorials within the University of Innsbruck (Austria), the leading European specialist on the heritage of V.G. Shukhov;
— Doctor Robert Hershner, the attaché for culture at the embassy of Austria in Russia.
