Late 1920s for Sverdlovsk was the time of active construction of the famous Ural Heavy Engineering Plant and the residential sector under it. To provide the rapidly growing neighbourhood with water, a water tower was required. So in 1931 an unusual constructivist building appeared in Uralmash, whose official name "UZTM water Tower" was almost immediately replaced by a much more "speaking" one - the White Tower. Weiner Street in Yekaterinburg City Russia

For several decades, the 29-meter hulk preformed the functions assigned to it, but in the 1960s, gradually fell into decay. The masterpiece of constructivism was rapidly deteriorating, everything went to dismantling, until a few years ago a group of enthusiasts decided to breath a second life into the White Tower. The building was mothballed, as far as possible, put in order and began to re-equip into a creative space.

Today, temporary exhibitions are held on the ground floor of the ground pavilion, where you can get acquainted with the history of the tower, see old photos and models. The tank itself is adapted for a multimedia and concert stage, and the observation tower above it is for a terrace with a breathtaking view of Uralmash. Museum of History of Stone Cutting and Jewelry Art
