Members of the Architectural Council called for the restoration in front of the pool, which operated from 1974 to 1994. According to representatives of “Giprokon” in the current funding model of the project of reconstruction the reconstruction of the pool was impossible. The experts of the Council believe that this issue can be addressed jointly with the city, it is noted in the message Department.

“Colleagues “Giprokon” consulted with experts], and we have established a rather positive opinion about this project. In this case, the object has no status of a monument, but, of course, is of value, everyone knows its sponsors and treat them with great respect. It is important to understand that the project isn’t an exact copy, because the copies are made with the same owner, materials, construction technique, which was then. In the draft there are moments dictated by the current time, technology, construction opportunities, and we would like to get a definite opinion of experts, whether they are adequate to the spirit and quality of this facility,” — said the chief architect of Moscow Sergey Kuznetsov. The final restoration project of the building, with expert commentary will be adopted in the near future.
