THE UNNAMED POINT OF A STREET
The architectural appearance of a street gets shaped over a long period under the influence of various factors: the street arises and changes gradually towards its current shape and characteristic features. The specific feature of Bazhov Street is the building of Uralgidromet located on the so-called Meteohill. It is an architectural dominant which terminates the street. The article considers the business centre located at the other end of Bazhov Street, which is also a dominant in the environment marking its beginning.
Key words: architectural dominant, architectural termination of street, business centre, unique natural landscape
