Facts

  • Being typical for post-war Soviet architecture, the project in many ways followed the famous "Stalin’s 7 sisters" (Vysotniye Zdaniya complex) of Moscow.
  • During 1999 – 2003 the building was reconstructed (architects E.Alexandrov, S.Shabiev, M.Tyurin, E.Zhukova) according to a slightly modified initial design. At this stage new materials and technologies were used.
  • While construction was in progress (1953 – 1959, architects A.Lukonin and V.Sokovnin) the initial design was changed dramatically; a tower and spire were excluded from the project due to "anti-extravagances campaign in architecture", which was launched by the Soviet government in 1955.
  • After the reconstruction in 2003, the building became the tallest in Chelyabinsk.
