Description

The Museum of Architecture and Design of the UrGAKhU in Yekaterinburg is located in a historical park, on Gorky Street, 4a. It was created in 1975 on the basis of the Sverdlovsk Architectural Institute (SAI) and the Sverdlovskgrazhdanproekt Institute. Its history began long before that, in 1973, when the Historical Square was opened in honor of the 250th anniversary of Sverdlovsk. The merits of the architectural institute in the creation of this complex were recognized, and some of the buildings were transferred for the creation of a museum.

The museum presents a wide exhibition, including sections on the history of architecture of the Urals, as well as on the development of industrial technology. The exhibits include models, graphics, paintings, photographs and large equipment from Ural factories.

The exhibition "Architecture of the Stone Belt" presents the history of architecture and urban planning of the Urals from the end of the 17th to the 20th centuries. Visitors can get acquainted with examples of folk wooden architecture, baroque, as well as modern and avant-garde architecture. Models of architectural ensembles and industrial structures of the Ural cities, made by students of the Ural State Academy of Architecture and Art and the Ural College of Architecture, Construction and Entrepreneurship, are of particular interest.

In addition, the museum offers virtual tours and documentary series about the architectural styles of the city, which makes the visit even more fun and informative.

The Museum of Architecture and Design of the UrGAKhU has existed since 1975 and occupies the buildings of the former workshops of the Yekaterinburg Mechanical Factory, monuments of industrial architecture of the 19th century.
