So it can be used only for general introduction.
May 29, 2004 72 th year of life died historian and restorer of ancient
architecture Wolfgang Volfgangovich Kavelmaher.
V. Kavelmaher was born in Moscow on January 22, 1933. In 1937 he was sent with his mother in a reference to Vorkuta, where he lived until the beginning of 1950.
Back in Moscow, Vladimir Kavelmaher graduated Architectural Institute. In the late fifties, he worked belokamenschikom, and since the beginning of the sixties - the architect-restorer. Virtually the entire subsequent career as VV Kavelmahera was associated with trust "Mosoblstroyrestavratsiya, where he worked until the early nineties.
In 1970 VV Kavelmaher began to use his rich experience of the restorer-practice in research on the history of ancient architecture. Its core competence, as before, were Moscow and Moscow region, but in terms of his interests included the monuments and Vladimir, and Tver and Ryazan and Yaroslavl regions. After leaving Germany in the late 1990's VV Kavelmaher conducted research on the relations of Russian and Western European architecture.
In academic circles, the best known fundamental research VV Kavelmahera on the history of Russian bells and bell towers, iconostasis and temples of the Moscow Kremlin, the Trinity-Sergius, Kolomna, Zvenigorod, Alexandrova Sloboda and St. George-Polish. But from the work of researchers published only a small part and on his enormous archives to work than one generation of conservators and architectural historians.
V. Kavelmaher was the representative of the glorious galaxy of researchers who have made the history of ancient architecture of speculative discipline in science, based on archaeological, forensic and historical factography. And now, when the rapid flow of the primary architectural and archaeological information into a thin stream, we are again and again to an invaluable study of the "golden age" stories of ancient architecture, which was lucky enough to live and work VV Kavelmaheru.
Such selfless devotees, what was VV Kavelmaher, science does not forget. Do not forget Wolfgang Volfgangovicha we.
