The Shukhov Tower, one of the symbols of Soviet constructivist architecture, known as Russia's Eiffel Tower, is now under threat of demolition. The tower, built in 1922, has a unique hyperbolic structure, first designed by architect and engineer Vladimir Shukhov at the end of 19th century. The Russian government made a decision to tear down the tower due to surface corrosion and a threat of falling down.
