Sukharev Tower Exhibition Opens in Moscow

The Moscow Shchusev Museum of Architecture is dedicating its exhibition to the lost unique architecture monument of Sukharev Tower.

      The exhibition will present drawings, photos, the model, and the project of reconstruction of Sukharevskaya Square of 1934.

      Sukharev Tower is an architectural construction, which was located in Moscow at the crossing of the Garden Ring Road, Sretenka and 1st Meshchanskaya Street in 1695 — 1934, and was an outstanding monument of Russian civil architecture.

Despite protests of many well-known architects and historians, Sukharev Tower was pulled down in 1934 due to reconstruction of the Square. Stalin directly participated in this decision-taking.

      The exhibition will run from April 5 to May 19.
