The restoration of the first Shukhov’s tower – the unique steel diagrid hyperboloid structure — has begun in the manor Polibino-Storozhevoe located in the Dankovsky district of the Lipetsk region. In 1896 Vladimir Grigorievich Shukhov was the first who introduced into architecture the form of hyperboloid, which later was used by Antoni Gaudi, Le Corbusier, Oscar Niemeyer and other architects. Shukhov’s Polibino tower is also the first steel load-carrying diagrid shell – the similar load-carrying diagrid structures is the main shape-generating means of the high-tech architecture and avant-garde in the XXI century.
So far, the Ministry of culture has appropriated around 7 million rubles for the preservation of the architectural and historical monuments in Polibino. Even modest financing enabled to start the foundation repair and preservation of the architectural masterpiece of the universal importance for preventing its further corrosion.
The full restoration of the first Shukhov’s hyperboloid needs extra money, therefore the Shukhov Tower Foundation invites sponsors for cooperation: +7 903 797 79 16, firstname.lastname@example.org
