Author of the Ostankino Tower to be Given an Unusual Monument
Nikolay Nikitin

A unique monument of stainless steel will be put up to Nikolay Nikitin, a famous Russian architect and author of the Ostankino Tower - the highest freestanding structure in Eurasia. The monument will be put up in Ishim, Tyumen Region, where Nikitin spent his childhood. 

      According to Sergey Titlinov, the director general of Yekaterinburg's Fund of Arts and one of the project's authors, such an unusual material for the monument was chosen relying on an uncommon Nikitin's personality, who was an innovator in his profession. His brilliant ideas used in the building of the Ostankino Tower still delight modern architects.

      The sculpture composition 4,5 meters high will be representing the architect's figure examining design of the Ostankino Tower. Monuments of stainless steel are still very rare. Generally, steel is used in the objects of modern art, such as an enormous drop in Chicago. But the detailed classical sculpute has not been founded yet, Sergey Titlinov said. 

      It is planned to put up the monument at the end of September 2011.

      Nikolay Nikitin (1907-1973) was born in Tobolsk, Siberia. In 1911 his family moved to Ishim. In 1930, Nikolay graduated from the Tomsk Technological Institute with training in construction. By 1937, he was living and working in Moscow. Nikitin's most well-known works are: Moscow State University, Warsaw Palace of Culture and Science, Luzhniki Stadium,"The Motherland Calls" statue in Volgograd and the Ostankino Tower.
