The draft concept of St. Catherine Cathedral in Ekaterinburg

One of the main attractions of Ekaterinburg is an abandoned unfinished television tower, the tallest building in the city (219 meters). Construction began in 1983, but, in 1991, because of the crisis in the country, it was stopped.

Since that time a number of projects for the reconstruction of the tower appeared, but none of them was approved. Recently, one more interesting project has been proposed.

The architectural workshop “Ptarh and Partners” presented a draft concept of the Cathedral of St. Catherine that can be built on the site of the unfinished TV Tower. It looks very impressive and unusual.
