The core of the virtual museum
is a 3D model of the building complex displayed on the project website. For the first time in Ekaterinburg, a complete three-dimensional model of a historical building of the constructivism era was created. This model helps you see all its details. The 3D model is displayed in the highest possible resolution and allows you to explore the complex in a free walk mode. Due to the large scale of the model, you can only do it on a desktop computer or a high-end smartphone. An interactive 2D model is also available on the website. Visitors can get familiar with the stories of the complex residents, local organizations, and events that once took place there. In total, there are 25 stories available.
The second component of the website is a series of articles about the history of the complex itself and its architecture. The museum staff has studied a lot of archival materials, thus getting a better understanding of what Gospromural was, and how house No. 52 on Lenina Avenue, its integral part, was designed.
The third section of the website is dedicated to the stories of its residents. This complex was built for the scientific and industrial elite of the region and for many years they had been a place of accommodation for engineering and scientific workers. For example, about ten candidates and doctors of chemical sciences used to live there. Among the residents there were also managers, artists, doctors, and teachers. Today, the website already stores over 30 stories from residents, and more are coming soon.
Yet another section of the website is dedicated to the recent past, present, and future of the complex. In particular, it's about history of street art objects located within the complex, the experience of developing the local community of residents of houses No. 52 and 54 on Lenina Avenue, the plans of the Ekaterinburg History Museum to transform and develop the new venue, etc.
