- Facade Friday! In celebration of today being the anniversary of man’s first step on the moon in 1969, here’s the wonderful, titanium clad Monument to the Conquerers of Space in Moscow. In March 1958, a few months after the launch of Sputnik 1, a competition was announced for the best design of an obelisk celebrating the dawn of the Space Age. Out of some 350 proposals, the design by sculptor A.P. Faidysh-Krandievsky and architects A.N. Kolchin and M.O. Barshch was chosen. The grand opening of the monument took place on October 4, 1964, on the day of the 7th anniversary of the Sputnik 1 launch. The monument was designed to accommodate a museum in its base but it took until April 10, 1981 (two days before the 20th anniversary of Yuri Gagarin's flight) to complete the preparatory work and open the Memorial Museum of Cosmonautics. The museum reopened on April 12, 2009 after three years of renovations. The main part of the monument is a giant obelisk topped by a rocket and resembling in shape the exhaust plume of the rocket. It is 107 meters (350 feet) tall and, on Sergey Korolyov's suggestion, covered with titanium cladding. Three decades before Frank Gehry secured a great deal on excess Russian titanium for the Guggenheim in Bilbao, the soaring lines of the Monument to the Conquerers of Space beautifully showcased the textural, reflective qualities of the material. #cosmonauts #monument #titanium #sculpture #astronaut #russia #moscow #ig_moscow #sovietmonumnet #archdaily #ic_architecture #arkitektur #timgriffithphoto #arquitetura #arquitectura #architecture #architecturalphotography #archilovers #archimasters #jj_architecture #rocket #spaceage #minimal #oftheafternoon #mm_architecture #abstractarchitecture
