Shukhov Radio Tower in Moscow

A man looks at Russian Constructivist masterpiece, the Shukhov tower, dominates skyline in Moscow, on April 8, 2014. A elegant steel tower that has risen over Moscow's skyline since 1922 will be torn down and sawn up, if a Russian ministry has its way. But a campaign to save the Constructivist masterpiece, the Shukhov tower, has gathered unprecedented support - via a street protest, a petition signed by thousands and fans snapping "selfie" photographs against its silhouette.
