ICOMOS Resolution re Russian Avant-Garde

ICOMOS wishes to again call to the attention of the authorities of the Russian Federation the urgent necessity of:
– halting the demolition of this internationally significant architectural and historical layer [Russian Avant-garde];
– providing top-level federal listing to these important heritage resources;
– ensuring the application of internationally approved conservation standards;
– taking urgent steps for the safeguarding and scientifically based restoration of internationally renowned Russian modernist treasures such as Shukhov Tower (V. Shukhov, 1919-1922), Melnikov House (K. Melnikov, 1927-1929) and Narkomfin Building (M. Ginzburg e al, 1928-1930) in Moscow.”
