Article STEEL CONSTRUCTIONS OF V.G. SHUKHOV AS A DESIGNING POTENTIAL FOR MODERN ARCHITECTURE
Authors K. Dushkevich, Moscow Institute of Architecture (State Academy), Moscow, Russia
Abstract The article is devoted to steel lightweight high-span constructions invented by Vladimir Shukhov in XIX c. The theme becomes more and more actual today due to using steel constructions in public buildings designing when engineers are set a task to create as high-span load bearing system or spatial grids, shells as possible. The article notices that Shukhovs constructions are reputable in the world while such architects as Norman Foster, Massimiliano Fuksas use the principles of his constructions, interpret his inventions in a modern way. The problem is that Russian engineers and architects refuse to be inspired by Shukhov and his fantastic timeless constructions. The article pays attention to the fact that Shukhovs inventions in the field of architecture are very actual today because of their several sustainable advantages such as durability, structural and material efficiency, architectural expression.

Several investigations were made to clear out what is going on with Shukhovs architectural heritage and focused on a problem of saving heritage-list buildings.
