Photographer's Note

This famous tower, situated on Shabolovka street in Moscow, was designed and constructed by the great Russian engineer and scientist Vladimir Shukhov (1853-1939) in 1922. The 150m tower was used for radio and then television broadcasting until the Ostankino tower was built. Right now it is not used as a transmitter tower but can be useful in emergency situations.

Soon it will become another Moscow point of interest. The Moscow authorities decided to make it shining and shimmering like the Eiffel Tower thanks to the application of special dynamic effects. Some restoration work will also be done.

The participants of the international scientific conference “Heritage at Risk. The preservation of the XX century architecture and the World heritage”, which took place in Moscow on April 18, considered it to be a part of the World heritage.
