HATCHES IN VYKSE
PLANT TO THE CITY
Vyksa, Nizhny Novgorod region
program: cast iron hatches with images of landmark events of the city
The main task was a visual demonstration of key events that influenced the history of the plant. The architects of the PG «8 lines» in collaboration with designer Natalia Shendrick created a series of hatches dedicated to Vyksa metallurgy.
New sewer hatches were installed on Metallurg Square in honor of the 260th anniversary of the Vyksa Metallurgical Plant. Each of the hatches displays a landmark event in the history of the plant.
The opening of the hatches took place on May 18, the day of the celebration of the anniversary of the Museum of the History of the Plant. Unusual hatches have become a new attraction in the city.
Author of the idea:
In the competition «Plant to the city», dedicated to the 260th anniversary of the Vyksa Metallurgical Plant, Alexander Orlov, an employee of «OMK-IT», was recognized as the author of the best idea of decorating sewage hatches. He proposed to design all the hatches in a single style, placing on each of the significant dates from the history of the enterprise with a description.
