Water tower

The tower, built in 1929-1932, is currently not used for its intended purpose, but it is of special interest as an architectural monument. The author of the project was the well-known Russian engineer, architect and scientist Vladimir Grigorievich Shukhov, who is the inventor of the world's first hyperboloid structures and metal mesh shells of building structures. Of the 200 steel mesh hyperboloid towers constructed according to VG. Shukhov, to the present day not more than 20, among which - the tower of Krasnodar.
